Severe weather events have become more common with documentaries recorded as evidence. Prior to Australia’s uncontainable crisis, the Polar Vortex had transformed the Midwestern U.S into a winter wonderland.
Regarded as a band of strong winds, soaring up into the atmosphere, the Polar Vortex kept a bitterly cold winter season air locked around the Arctic region.
Within the period of occurrence, the strong wind was envisaged to drift further South than the usual as well as enclose highly populated areas of North America.
Chicago was particularly hit hard and its windy location on Lake Michigan brought about freezing temperatures down to recording-breaking lows.
Having witnessed exploding tanks, frozen Spaghetti and frozen toilets among others, We have compiled 30 Real Life photos showing how insanely cold it could get in America.
On the other hand, it certainly will give you some chills! Thus grab for yourself a cup of coffee before scrolling down!
