It has been swallowed by Iguasu, the world's largest waterfall

In the world's three largest waterfalls, Iguazu Falls far surpasses the other two in terms of waterfall width and water volume. I report on his land which the indigenous people called "great water" thoroughly from the site.

Hello.World newspaperIt is Matsuzaki Atsushi of. I am around the world, now I am in the city of Argentina of Iguazu Falls, Puerto Iguazu.

The world's three largest waterfalls Iguazu Falls is the world's largest waterfall that spans Argentina and Brazil, has a maximum head of over 80 meters, a waterfall width of 2.7 kilometers, and a waterfall water volume of 3.6 billion liters per minute. Niagara Falls is 1 km in width of waterfall, 170 million liters of water, 1.7 km in Victoria Falls, 500 million liters each. You can see how big the scale is when compared with the two. By the way, Mrs. Roosevelt who visited Iguacu said that she was "poor little my Niagara."
