Polar Vortex 2019: People In US Midwest Are Throwing Boiling Water In The Air To See It Freeze

IANS, 02 Feb, 2019
  • Polar Vortex 2019: People In US Midwest Are Throwing Boiling Water In The Air To See It Freeze

A torrent of polar air brought record-low temperatures to much of the American Midwest on Wednesday.

 

The bitter cold is being caused by a displacement of the polar vortex, a stream of air that normally spins around the stratosphere over the North Pole, but whose current was disrupted. But how cold is it exactly? Well, temperatures are reaching minus 29 degrees Celsius in certain parts of the Midwest, making it colder than the South Pole.

 

On social media, many have taken to answering the question of how cold it is exactly with the help of examples. From ice forming inside houses to hair freezing in air, their posts will make you shiver even as you read them.

 

Take a look below:

 

It's so cold that this Iowa woman's hair literally froze mid-air. Her video has now collected over 1.67 million views. "Is Iowa really THAT cold?" Taylor Scallon captioned the clip.
