A branch of the Amazon River called the Rio Solimoes overflowed this week due to heavy rains and flooding, and rose high into the streets of Anama, in the Amazonas state of Brazil, according to Reuters.
Brazil’s Civil Defense reported that over 250,000 Brazilians were affected.
Residents of the area used canoes to reach markets and navigate the streets.
Seasonal flooding is common along the Amazon River during this time of year, but high water presents issues for some plant and animal species.
Still, the high waters gave way to high spirits for some children.
