Iguazu falls / cataratas de Iguazú

Torrential rain over the state of Paraná has meant a sharp increase in the volume of water carried by the Iguazu river. This has forced the Argentinian authorities to close the walkway leading to the Devil’s Throat.

If you have a look at the link we explained at Enough water at the Iguazu falls? you will see that the volume of water reached unbelievable 11,400 m3 per second when the average is 1,200 m3 per second. More than ten times the average volume of water! A Brazilian website published yesterday a photograph showing the awesome volume of water going down the falls on the Brazilian side.

Forecasters are expecting rain will ease over the coming few days.
