With the start of new year, it’s getting chilly in Northern India, however, do you’ve any idea what’s happening in North America?
Earlier we got to hear that it’s the coldest time in the closing 24 years as home windows broke down because of cold and if this was now not sufficient, sharks died because of cold surprise in Cape Cod. And now you’ll get a larger shock to understand that Niagara Falls has frozen too.
The waterfall which has the highest rate of flow in comparison to all the falls of North America has a vertical drop of over 165 feet (50m). Niagara Falls is the name used for three waterfalls combined which are between the New York state and the Canadian province of Ontario.
The reason for this cold weather is the arctic blast of air which stretches from Midwest to the Northeast and its effects are quite visible in the temperatures of Charleston, South Carolina as well.
Niagara Falls is also the largest source of hydroelectricity in the state of New York with a capacity of generating 2.4 gigawatts.
