Water, Force of Nature

Gullfoss Gorge in Iceland was formed by flash floods. It is named after Gullfoss, the waterfall that flows through it. The average water flow in Gullfoss is 109 cubic meters per second, but can reach up to 2000 cubic meters per second. It can fill 60 transportation containers in 1 second! Now, that is some force!!!
