New Year's Eve preparations in Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls has frozen over because it's so cold in America The Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls

North America is currently experiencing its harshest cold snap in 24 years, with reports of windows breaking due to the cold and sharks freezing to death in Cape Cod - and now it's reached a new level, as Niagara Falls has frozen over. That's an actual temperature, folks, not a wind chill. The previous lowest temperature was in 1962, dropping to -26.1 degree Celsius.

The icy weather has put New Year's Eve festivities on ice.

Police say an 83-year-old woman died from exposure to the cold after crashing her auto in eastern South Dakota.

As a deep freeze across the Midwest and East Coast has dropped temperatures, wreaked havoc on highways and forced cancellations of many New Year's celebrations, the frigid weather has also made one of the world's most handsome tourist destinations an even more remarkable sight than usual.

The show kicks off tomorrow night at 8 p.m. with fireworks at 9 p.m. and 12 a.m. Many took to social media to share photos of frozen parts of Niagara Falls. It said skating and pyrotechnics would proceed on Parliament Hill as planned.

As a deep freeze sets in across half the country, officials are urging people to help those most vulnerable, especially the homeless and the elderly. The cold front stretches from the Rocky Mountains to the eastern seaboard and as far south as Oklahoma.

"This is a crippling snow event", Zach Sefcovic, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, told Reuters.

The freezing temperatures in the US are being blamed on a number of deaths on the road and people exposed to the cold. "They are no strangers to snow in that part of the state, but this much snow in that short a time is just unprecedented".

Niagara Falls is in fact the collective name for a series of three waterfalls between the state of NY and the Canadian province of Ontario.
