Additional Details:
American Falls properly comprises two precipitating floods, for the stream as it approaches the fearful brink, is divided by Luna Island and goes tumbling with increased velocity over the ledge at Centre Fall, on one side, and American Falls on the other. At the point shown, the sheer descent is one hundred and fifty-nine feet. The amount of water thus precipitated is computed to be two million five hundred thousand gallons per second.
