HORNBLOWER NIAGARA CRUISES

Souvenir Audio Guide – English Clip Sample
Only once in recorded history has the flow of the Falls ever stopped although in that instance it was Mother nature and not man. In March of 1848, residents of the area awoke to an unaccustomed silence of the mighty Niagara river was mere triple and was exposed, and well the Falls it was just a cliff. Not knowing what to think, some people feared it was the end of the world, some began praying, others more curious began to explore onto the river. Only those upstream understand the reason for this phenomenon, an ice jam had blocked up and was blocking the source of the river and Lake Erie. For more than 30 hours, no water reached the Falls, what a confusing and eerie site this must have been. Finally,there was a shift in the wind and the dam broke causing the flow to begin and sending the thundering water down the river and over the falls once again.
