I read somewhere that the strange sky sounds and booms recently started in that area, too. Wonder if this is related? And I agree with you, where ARE the news reports?? This should be important..

In my geology class, I learned there was three things that caused erosion: Wind, ice and water.

I think this was very poorly done. Somebody tried to get fancy and messed this up. Comparisons should have went back and forth from the same locations earlier videos were made. It's hard to really see the changes the way it is now. Not impressed, sorry.

May I ask what this has to do with "NIAGARA Falls"? From what I understand, the Niagara Escarpment is not the same as Niagara Falls. Although the Niagara Falls do lie on this same escarpment, they are over 200km away from Indian falls. Here I was thinking part of the Niagara Falls had collapsed


Although these events don't happen every day, I'm not so sure it's a once in millennium event. The video had stated that it had been stable for the last 100 years. It may have had some forms of collapse sometime in the last 1000 years, but I don't think we can tell exactly when. Even in the before photos, you can see that there had been part of the dolomite formation that has eroded and fallen to the bottom of the waterfall. Looks like natural erosion, in my opinion.

It looks like a beautiful area, and it is great that no one was injured in the collapse. I would have been a little wary of being under the ledge, as although dolomite is harder than the soft shale, it is not as hard as some igneous rocks such as basalt and could be more prone to collapse. Speaking of basalt, I thought I'd post this image of a waterfall I've been to recently, Bridal Veil Falls near Raglan, New Zealand. The falls fall over a vast basalt plug from an ancient volcano. It's a very good place to visit if you like waterfalls

It's a water fall.

The falls will continue to recede north until it joins Lake Ontario and disappears.

Why does the OP have no information, no link to the news of it just a link to a picture of waterfalls?

Pointless thread without any info given

In regards to the title, I am only an hour away from the falls, the Indian Falls are part of the Niagara Escarpment but not part of the Niagara Falls.

As far as the Niagara Falls erosion goes, they do not errode 6 feet per year


Niagara Falls Geology




Its current rate of erosion is estimated at 1 foot per year and could possibly be reduced to 1 foot per 10 years.

And this is exactly what I'm talking about. When certain segments of a culture don't adhere to the norms of another in this country, they just legislate some law to make that behavior illegal.

People are got their panties in such a bunch about how I and these kids dress they won't get down or even try to understand or acknowledge what this dress style is.

I'm waiting to see if they are going to make Emo culture illegal too
