Giant iceberg from Greenland making its way to Labrador

An iceberg, which was originally 250 square kilometres when it broke off from Greenland last year, is closing in on Northern Labrador. The iceberg is larger than many of the islands off the coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Coast Guard says it is difficult to predict what will happen to the iceberg, but predicts that it will break up as a result of sea action, and that it will be ‘interesting’ to see how much of the iceberg’s mass is left if it reaches the island portion of the province. Aside from the giant iceberg from Greenland, it is expected to be a less-than-average year for icebergs.
