Floodwaters overrun lookout points at Argentina falls

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Murky brown flood water charged over Iguazu Falls on Monday (June 9) after heavy rainfall caused the Parana, the river feeding into the falls, to overflow. Walkways and viewpoints at the UNESCO National Heritage site were almost completely submerged under water, prompting authorities to close the normally bustling tourist hotspot shared by Argentina and Brazil. Not only did the flooding leave potential visitors to the falls in the lurch, but it also took a casino riverboat for a spin. The 90 metre (295 feet) boat, which is in the process of being converted into a floating casino, was set adrift on the Iguazu and Parana rivers before being rescued by the coast guard. Torrential rains pummeled the region over the weekend, causing the water surge.
