(FOX NEWS) – The remains of an iron scow lodged in the Niagara River since August 1918 have moved for the first time in more than 100 years after strong winds and heavy rain battered the Canadian falls.

Niagara Parks officials announced that the historic site, which lies just 656 yards from the brink of the Horseshoe Falls, was dislodged because of a storm.

Senior Manager of Heritage Jim Hill said in a news release that the dumping barge “appears to have flipped on its side and spun around,” adding that it appeared to have shifted about 164 feet downriver from its initial resting place.
