Niagara Falls Shipwreck Looks Unrecognizable After Moving For The First Time In 101 Years - Narcity

On Halloween, an iron shipwreck at Niagara Falls was moved out of place for the first time in 101 years during the wild Halloween storm we had. Since the move of the Niagara Falls shipwreck, many pictures have appeared that show what the ship looks like today. The Iron Scow is a rare relic that lives on from a time that was so different than ours today. 

This Halloween, an intense storm brought in winds so fast, that it was able to tip the shipwreck over on its side and move it about 50 meters closer to the edge.

Due to its long time in the water, it has significantly deteriorated and rusted, which may have been a reason for it to have been tipped over by the unusually high 94km/h winds. 

However, while it was caught moving for the first time in 101 years, it looks like it may now be stuck in the new position on its side.

David Adames, CEO of Niagara Parks, told CBC that they are not anticipating that the shipwreck will move much more. However, that could change though, as the boat continues to break down by rust over time.”It looks secure at the moment; however, if theres severe weather that comes along, it may shift it some more.”The staff is monitoring the scow via security cameras for any sign that it might budge again.
