VIDEO: Iguaza Falls “Big Water” Bigger Than Ever After Heavy Rains in Brazil

Flooding Creates Dramatic Effect on Waterfall.

Torrential rainfall recently in Brazil led authorities to open two hydroelectric dams above the world-renowned Iguazu Falls — increasing water flow nearly 30-fold.

Iguazu Falls are waterfalls of the Iguazu River on the border of the Argentina province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu.

The falls are reached from the following towns on either side of the falls:

Puerto Iguazú in Argentina
Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil,
Ciudad del Este in Paraguay

The falls are shared by the Iguazú National Park in Argentina and Iguaçu National Park in Brazil. The two parks were designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1984 and 1987, respectively.
