The severe drought recorded over recent months in southern Brazil had had obvious effect on the famous Iguazu Falls, generating impact of all kinds in its flora and fauna. Obviously, also brought the decline of tourists constantly visiting these spectacular regions.
The normal water flow that transports the river was reduced to less than half, falling from 1.2 million gallons per day average less than 600 thousand liters per second. With this, many of the huge walls of rock had been uncovered, and had even areas where you could see the debris from the bottom of the falls.
Luckily, it seems that in recent days that has changed, as finally recorded volumes of rainfall that have reversed the situation. These rains have helped the recovery of normal levels in the flow of the Iguazu River, which now exceeds nine meters deep. The Guaraní word “Yguasu” that the river gets its name means “big water”, so hopefully we can say that the falls again live up to its name.
Thus, the image that we have the beginning of the article takes on a role of persuasion, since those who have the fortune to visit Niagara Falls today, you will find lush landscapes intact and in all its glory. Below left some other pictures that will surely decide a few for this splendid and classic South American tourist destination.
