Wild videos show cruise ship chaos as rough seas prompt an evacuation

Wild videos show cruise ship chaos as rough seas prompt an evacuationIncredible videos shared on Twitter are showing the wild rough seas that have led to the evacuation of 1,300 people from a cruise ship off the coast of Norway. The ship, Viking Cruise's "Viking Sky," sent a distress signal Saturday afternoon local time, reporting "engine problems in bad weather," according to CNN. And videos from both inside the cruise ship and from the shore show how bad the seas are. The BBC reports that at least one of the ship's engines was successfully restarted, enabling the Viking Sky to move a bit further from the rocky shore. Not surprisingly, the BBC also notes, "The area is known as the Hustadvika and is reportedly one of the most dangerous stretches of Norway's coast."SEE ALSO: El Niño has arrived.

Girl's wild frozen hair shows the power of the polar vortex

Girl's wild frozen hair shows the power of the polar vortexAlright, Mother Nature, you've done your thing — and we're all very impressed — but this is getting out of hand. 

In recent days, extremely cold temperatures have caused everything from 2,600 flight delays to the halting of U.S. postal service delivery (and they never stop for anything). But if there's anything we can learn from cold Midwesterners, it's that this polar vortex doesn't need to be a polar snorefest. 

Iowa native @taylor_scallon showed the power of negative temps when she shared a video of herself  outside with a very interesting hairstyle. She managed to get her hair to defy gravity and freeze straight up when she went outside with wet hair.

While it might be fun to make yourself look like a Who from Whoville, it's important to remember that these temps are no joke. So stay warm inside and leave the winter pranks for when Mother Nature has left town.
