Ice Floats Along Niagara River During 'Brutal Cold' in Ontario

Environment Canada reported minimum temperatures as low as -25 degrees Celsius in parts of Ontario on Saturday, February 4, as “brutal cold” hit eastern Canada.

Video posted by Denis Kreze on Saturday shows the view at sunrise from Fort Erie looking across the Niagara River toward Buffalo, New York, as pieces of ice float on the waterway. Kreze said that it was “absolutely frigid.”

The Canadian weather service forecasted that the temperature would rise in the area as the arctic blast passed. Credit: Denis Kreze via Storyful
