Freezing temperatures transform Niagara Falls into a winter wonderland

The effects of the cold weather have been evident far and wide, but perhaps none are quite as striking as "frozen" Niagara Falls.

On the American side, Niagara Falls State Park stretches over 400 acres and about 140 acres of it is under water - bringing tourists from around the globe.

According to Environment Canada, the typical temperature for December in the region is just below 0 C.

A visitor takes a photograph at the brink of the Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls, Ont. on December 29, 2017. Considering that over 3,000 tons of water plummet over the falls every second, it would take "a lot more than a few days of cold weather to completely shut that off", she said.

As winter temperatures in North America drop to freezing new lows, Niagara Falls State Park has turned into a lovely icy wonderland.

Ice and freezing rain are expected into Wednesday morning, possibly mixed with sleet and snow. "This may give the impression that the falls are frozen over but that's not the case".

Visitors hardy enough to withstand the bone-chilling cold are treated to snapshots and selfies in a winter wonderland.

Tim Partin of Williamsburg, Kentucky, was in Niagara Falls on business when he made a decision to take in the scenery.

In the 19th century, winter visitors to the falls would use natural ice bridges to cross the entire Niagara River from Canada to the U.S. However, three people died in 1912 when the ice bridge broke apart. Other parts of Canada have also been showing off their snow-covered landscapes.
