The famous Niagara Falls froze

A new winter spectacle amazes tourists and residents of the border that borders the United States with Canada. Is that the storm ‘Harper’ has left the well-known Niagara Falls frozen.

The last time that the falls froze was in 2014 and as then, this natural enclave located on the border between the United States and Canada is a great tourist attraction for the region.

Local media report that the cold has frozen much of the falls, offering postcards to remember.

The falls are partially frozen, the water flows but with gigantic blocks of ice, which also causes a different visual spectacle.

Harper's Storm

For several days now, the winter storm Harper has hit the north-central region of the United States. The lowest temperatures that have been recorded reached 21 degrees below zero in states like Maine and Vermont.

Faced with the cold snap, the National Weather Service has issued storm alerts in at least 15 states across the country, between southeastern Missouri and the extreme north of the state of Maine. They warn about the danger of stalactites and freezing on routes.
