Huge iceberg threatens small island of Greenland

Greenland Village Evacuated As Giant Iceberg Approaches, May Create Tsunami

Emergency services in Greenland are closely monitoring an iceberg, and the shore is the ship of the Danish Royal Navy.

In June, scientists with New York University (NYU) watched a mammoth iceberg breaking off a glacier in Greenland.

The iceberg is now 500 to 600 meters offshore, and police and local officials will conduct an updated evaluation of the situation on Monday.

The iceberg is 650 feet (0.19 kilometres) wide - almost the length of two football fields - and rises 300 feet (0.09 kilometres) above sea level, according to the New York Times.
