Huge floating iceberg could create excitement this Summer

A massive floating island of ice that broke off from a glacier near Greenland last August could add to Newfoundland and Labrador’s tourist attraction this summer. The ice sheet is now off of the coast of Labrador, and experts predict it will ground there and break up. Icebergs from the fractured ice island are expected to appear off Newfoundland’s Northern Peninsula towards the second half of July and into August. If they don’t break up or melt, they’ll make the usual trek around the province’s scenic coastline.
