Brazil. Iguazu Falls. A record amount of water

Most of the metal footbridges leading to Iguazu Falls in Brazil have been flooded. After heavy rains, the water level reached the second highest level.

Located on the Brazil-Argentina border, Iguazu Falls is the world’s largest waterfall complex. It is one of the most popular attractions that draws tourists to South America from all over the world.

However, at present, the spectacular views of the water falls can only be seen from a distance. The water in the waterfall is now 16 times higher than usual. This is the second highest record in the history of measurements.

Due to heavy rains in southern Brazil, water flow at the falls reached about 24,100 cubic meters per second on Monday, while the average annual flow is 1,500 meters per second. “This is the largest volume of water in recent years,” Urbia, which manages the national park where the falls are located, insisted in a statement.
