In recent days, several photos and videos have been published of the Iguaçu Falls overflowing with a flow much higher than normal, due to intense rains in Paraná and the increase in the volume of the Iguaçu River. Access, both on the Brazilian and Argentine sides, has been closed since the weekend.
Argentine authorities met to examine the damage caused and make weather forecasts. Misiones, an Argentine city, also had attractions impacted by heavy rains with wind and hail.
It is expected that, at least the Argentine side, will be reopened for visitors this Friday (3), except for the Garganta del Diablo area, which continues to lack adequate security conditions. The infrastructure and cleaning team is working to repair grass, trees and other debris that was dragged onto the walkway.
Urbia Cataratas, from Brazil, also reported that, even with the closure of the walkway that gives access to the Garganta do Diabo viewpoint, the viewpoints on the Cataratas Trail are open. The Iguaçu National Park will have extended opening hours for access from 8am to 4pm from November 2nd to 5th, during which time the team will be reinforced across the entire tourist circuit
