Tsunami Warning in Greenland as a Massive Iceberg Spotted near Shore: Video

A huge iceberg has drifted close to a village in Greenland, prompting a partial evacuation in case it splits and the resulting wave swamps homes, a media report said on Saturday. The iceberg is looming over houses on a promontory in the Innaarsuit village but is grounded and has not moved, reports the BBC.

Local officials say they have never seen such a big iceberg before. Last year, four people died after waves swamped houses in northwestern Greenland following an earthquake. Inaarsuit’s 169 residents living nearest the iceberg have been moved, Danish news agency Ritzau said.

Some experts have warned that extreme iceberg events risk becoming more frequent because of climate change. This, in turn, increases the risk from tsunamis. In June, New York University scientists released video footage of a massive iceberg breaking away from a glacier in eastern Greenland.
