The deep freeze of Niagara Falls

23 January 2019

Parts of Niagara Falls are frozen Tuesday after a winter storm blanketed the Midwest in snow as it headed to the Northeast.

The Weather Service issued winter storm warnings or advisories for a swath of the eastern United States that is home to 100 million people. The storm system, which was moving from west to east and was strengthened by arctic air from Canada, hit many parts of the Midwest on Friday, according to the National Weather Service.
