Niagara Falls freezes over as polar vortex drops temperatures

It is so cold across North America that the normally rushing falls of the Niagara river have partially frozen. The river is still flowing underneath the ice, which isn’t expected to melt any time soon as temperatures continue to stay below freezing.

As well as the record breaking freezing conditions at the border of Canada and The USA, the polar vortex has spread far south and east, towards New York City and Boston.  The upper surface of the Hudson River and East River around Manhattan have also started to freeze.
