Lack of rain combined with preventive action to save water for energy production has changed the scenario of the Iguaçu Falls in recent days. See photos:

A different scenario from that found by tourists has taken over the Iguaçu Falls in recent days. Photographs show the famous rapids of the Iguacu National Park with little water. But this has an explanation: the lack of rain together with a preventive action to save water from the Iguaçu River for the production of electricity.

The information is from Paraná Electric Power Company (Copel), which monitors the region's waters. To give you an idea, in the last week the flow reached only 260 m³ per second, that is, five times less than the normal flow. This is the lowest flow since 2005, when it reached just 233 m³ per second.
