Polar Vortex Freezes Niagara Falls


A deadly blast of arctic air that shattered decades-old temperature records as it enveloped the eastern United States this week has caused Niagara Falls on the United States and Canadian border to become a winter wonderland. Parts of the 176 foot (53.6.m) American Falls were covered in ice and the area below the observation area was frozen over as tourists flocked to the destination on Thursday (January 9).
