Helheim Glacier in Greenland Just Lost a Huge Chunk of Ice

Helheim Glacier in Greenland Just Lost a Huge Chunk of Ice

In this Thursday, July 12, 2018 photo, a view of an Iceberg, near the village Innaarsuit, on the northwestern Greenlandic coast.

"We fear the iceberg could calve and send a flood towards the village", Lina Davidsen, a security chief at the Greenland police, told Danish news agency Ritzau on Friday.

Local authorities told 33 of the 169 residents of Innaarsuit living close to the iceberg to evacuate the area and move to higher ground.

Village senator Susan said in a local paper, "I am afraid that icebergs with cracks and holes can break at any time".

"We are used to big icebergs, but we haven't seen such a big one before", Susanna Eliassen, a member of the village council in Innaarsuit, told the Greenlandic Broadcasting Corporation (KNR).

It's a natural outcome of the expansion of ice into the sea, and it's estimated that Greenland's glaciers produce somewhere between 15,000 and 30,000 icebergs per year.

Authorities fear the village could be flooded if the iceberg breaks apart.

Last year, four people died and 11 were injured after an natural disaster sparked a tsunami off another island settlement called Nuugaatsiaq, sending several houses crashing into the sea.

He says "These are small villages which are situated on the shore, with small houses, and suddenly snowfalls appear, and they look like NY skyscrapers, they are simply high".

Researchers have warned of an increasing occurrence of icebergs as well as the accompanying tsunami hazards as climate change casts its sway on the island.

Video of the break-up on 22 June was shot by his wife, Denise Holland of NYU's Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory.

"Global sea-level rise is both undeniable and consequential", said atmosphere ocean scientist David Holland of New York University.

That's what researchers are comparing the 11-million-ton iceberg now looming over a tiny village in Greenland to.

Innaarsuit is situated about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) north of Greenland's capital and largest city, Nuuk.

"It sounded like rockets going off", he said.
