Greenland Village Evacuated as Iceberg Approaches
An iceberg has drifted close to a village on the western coast of Greenland, and people close to shore have been evacuated in case it calves - potentially causing a tsunami.
The 300-foot-high (100-meter-high) iceberg lies adjacent to the village of Innaarsuit, a remote village with 170 inhabitants. “We are used to big icebergs, but we haven’t seen such a big one before,” Susanna Eliassen, a member of the village council told KNR.
Last summer, four people died after waves swamped a settlement in northwestern Greenland, reports Reuters.
