Giant iceberg threatens small Greenland settlement in view of the NATO Summit attendees



"A giant iceberg calves off the coast of a small Greenland settlement, causing serious flooding. More calvings are possible, and they could cause serious damage to infrastructure. In the background is a radio playing live coverage of the NATO summit.

They've evacuated the low-lying parts of the village as a precaution. There have been two minor calvings since this video, but everybody is holding their breath to see what happens next. The Danish government has sent an icebreaker to try to deal with whatever happens. This has not happened in at least a century until last year, when a similar iceberg caused flooding in this and another nearby town.

Last year four people died and 11 were injured (the two towns have a population of less than 250 combined)."
