Heavy Flooding Creates Spectacular Underwater Forest

Rumble / Natural PhenomenaNature is always there to surprise us. Whenever we think of something as absolutely stunning it morphs it into something even more beautiful. This footage comes to us from the greenest parts of Brazil and it shows us the results of the fluctuations in the water levels of Rio da Prata. When it rains a lot, the Rio da Prata river runs of slower form, causing its damming, thus increasing the water level of the Olho D'Água river.

Despite the flood, on the day the video was recorded the waters of the Olho D'Agua river remained crystal clear due to their conserved riparian forest and being inside a Private Reserve of the Natural Patrimony - PRNP, a type of Conservation Unit.

This was a rare episode, and by the end of the day the river had returned to its normal level.

We would like to inform that on this date the tour operated normally until the 1st stretch, which, although it is also above normal, all the tourists left satisfied because they experienced a different and special day in the attraction!

Faced with the repercussion of the video released on February 15, in social networks, which appears a submerged track, we wanted to pass some clarification. The fact really happened at the Rio de Prata Ecological Recanto (Jardim-MS) on February 02 and was recorded during the monitoring carried out by Waldemilson Vera.
