The popular spot was also covered in mist from the fall’s rose, which created a rainbow.
Another photo shows the Niagara River crossing the falls. The water eventually reaches Lake Ontario.
The blizzard and low temperatures caused Niagara Falls to become an icy spectacle. Video footage showed a Hamburg restaurant covered with icicles, and a Michigan lighthouse transformed into an ice sculpture.
After the weekend’s snowstorm, 51.9 inches of snow was recorded in Erie County (New York), where Niagara Falls is partly located. According to CBS News, at least 60 people died in eight states due to the storm.
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz stated Wednesday that the death toll from the county has risen to 34. Most of these deaths were in Buffalo. This number is higher than the 29 deaths from the Blizzard in ’77, which was widely reported by CBS affiliate WIVB TV.
