Iguazu Falls have recorded the biggest flow in history following torrential rainfall in recent days across Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.
The falls are carrying 46,300 cubic meters per second— 33 times the usual water flow rate.
The previous record was in 1992, when the river reached 36,000 cubic meters per second.
The Iguazu Falls are fed by the Iguazu and Parana rivers. The falls are on the border of the Argentina province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná.
On the Brazil side, the rising water swallowed the cement viewing platform where thousands of tourists usually take pictures below the "Garganta del Diablo," or Devil's Throat, AP reported.
