US parks officials are monitoring a century-old grounded barge that briefly broke loose during a storm last week in the river just above Niagara Falls .

A barge which has been stuck in the rapids above Niagara Falls for more than 100 years has been moved by a Halloween storm.

“It could be stuck there for days or it could be stuck there for years ,” Hill explained. “It’s anyone’s guess.” Due to the storm, the boat ended up flipping on its side, spun around and moved more than 150 meters Officials say the ship is now a lot closer to possibly going right over the edge of the falls .

The rusty iron scow moved about 50m (164ft) downstream before becoming lodged again, according to the Washington Post.

Jim Hill, the commission's senior heritage manager, said the barge, while not currently moving, appears to have "flipped on its side and spun around".

Officials are monitoring the vessel and said it could be stuck in its new location for days or years.

The vessel, known as a dumping scow, broke free of the tug towing it during a dredging operation.

It became lodged on rocks about a third of a mile from the brink of Horseshoe Falls, one of three separate waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls.

The two men on board had the presence of mind to open its bottom doors, flooding the vessel and slowing its progress towards the drop.

The men were rescued the following day.
