Frigid cold wave in North America and Canada has turned Niagara Falls into a winter spectacle
North American region along with Canada is in the grip of a frigid cold wave. The current cold wave is being termed as an extreme weather event in most of Canada and the contiguous north United States.

According to scientists, it is the severest of cold spells witnessed since the last two decades.

This time the extreme cold conditions have frozen the Niagara Falls too with temperatures reaching below minus ten degree Celsius. Many photographers and tourists have rushed to the falls to take photographs of the frozen water.

According to the Canadian National Weather Service, the frozen conditions at the falls are going to persist for the coming few days since the cold wave's chilling air has resulted into a major winter storm this year.

Even at the Times Square, New York City, a low temperature of -13 degree Celsius was witnessed while in South Dakota, a new low temperature of -36 degree Celsius has been recorded. It is said that this time the cold wave has coincided with the Winter Storm Grayson to create extreme cold conditions.

Such a cold wave often causes deaths and injuries to livestock and wildlife. Due to heavy and persistent snowfall in such conditions, the grazing animals are unable to reach the food and die of hypothermia. In remote areas, cold spells are associated with increased mortality rates in human populations too.
