Unbelievable Timelapse Shows 300 ft Tall Iceberg Drift Past Small Village

Iceberg

An astonishing time-lapse shows a huge, 11 million-ton iceberg drifting past the small Greenlandic village of Innaarsuit. Authorities urged residents near shore to leave as fears of calving ice could lead to huge waves and possibly flood the tiny island.

The small settlement of 169 residents watched in fear as the heavy mass lurched slowly past. In the extra video attached below, you can see a big chunk of the iceberg calving into the water.

The event comes weeks after scientists at New York University shot and released a video of a huge iceberg breaking free from a glacier in eastern Greenland in June.
