Massive iceberg spotted from space!

20 Juillet, 2018, 11:40 | Auteur: Therese Cote

The iceberg towers over houses on a promontory in the village of Innaarsuit but it is grounded and has not moved overnight, state broadcaster KNR reported.

Low-lying areas of a village in Greenland remain evacuated as villagers and authorities monitor a vast iceberg for signs it could move closer or break apart, threatening the remote settlement.

The European Space Agency (ESA) released an image Tuesday showing the giant iceberg just off the coast of Innaarsuit.

The government and police are on high alert and have moved a search-and-rescue (SAR) helicopter closer to the remote village with about 170 inhabitants. "If the berg breaks apart, waves resulting from the falling ice could wash away parts of the village". The local power plant is also on the coast so waves could also potentially shut down the village's power supply.

Villagers told the Greenlandic Broadcasting Corporation that they had never seen such a large iceberg so close to the island before.

Strong winds and elevated tides have reportedly blown the iceberg a few hundred meters away from the harbor over the weekend.

The image captured July 9 by ESA's Sentinel-2 satellites also shows several other large icebergs in the vicinity.
