On January 26, 1936, the impossible happened: Niagara Falls froze completely. That means: not only the area around the waterfalls, but also the falling water itself was frozen to ice.
The spectacle lasted a full 15 days.
85 years later, the sub-zero temperatures in North America and in southeastern Canada caused a similar spectacle. Pictures show how the area around Niagara Falls has frozen to ice.
The water on the surface froze, as did the mist in the air that covered the nearby branches and guard rails in ice.
The 51 meter high waterfall is the fifth highest in the world. It is part of the Niagara River, which connects the American Lake Erie with the Canadian Lake Ontario. More than 18 million tourists are drawn to this natural spectacle every year. (une)
