The spectacular Niagara Falls with its roaring and cascading waters froze as the polar vortex gripped much of the United States.
The majestic Niagara Falls frozen!
Those few visitors who were brave enough to confront the freezing temperatures at the world’s most famous waterfalls, were treated to an incredible sight – the spectacular Niagara Falls with its roaring and cascading waters was frozen and white!
The Sky News US Team reported, “Water turned to ice as it plunged over the 34-metre-high American Falls – one of three waterfalls which form the popular tourist attraction on the border between the United States and Canada. Icy chunks tumbled over the crest of the falls and long icicles were left dangling above the frozen Niagara River below.”
“The unusual sight came as a polar vortex that gripped the US for four days, plunging temperatures to -37C (-35F) and leaving at least 21 people dead, finally began to ease its grip,” the report added.
“Polar vortex” is a whirlpool of freezing, dense air, a large-scale cyclone located near the Poles, that plunges temperatures in the areas it goes through.
