Incredible photos show the moment Niagara Falls FROZE in polar vortex

NEW YORK (MAMOSA Report), Jan 10 – The polar vortex has turned one of the world’s most famous waterfalls to ice.

The record-breaking chill across the U.S. was so frigid it literally stopped Niagara Falls in its tracks.

Freezing air and arctic temperatures have brought North American to near-standstill.

Photos below show Niagara Falls, which is one of the world’s most famous natural landmarks, turned to ice by the polar vortex. The landmark turned to ice by the recent arctic weather striking the US.

These incredible pictures have captured a scene that rarely occurs. These photographs have captured the moment water froze before it could reach the bottom of the famous falls.

According to historical records, during only one year, 1848, has freezing weather caused the thousands of cubic feet of water per second flowing over the Niagara Falls to run dry, an event thought to have been caused by ice jamming and damming upriver.

One of the earliest images showing a frozen Niagara Falls, in sepia tones, is thought to be from 1911 or 1912. See below.
