Talk about a wall of ice! A small town in Newfoundland reports that an iceberg has washed ashore and has become a huge tourist attraction!
Here is the story from The Guardian:
A towering iceberg is causing traffic jams in a remote town on Canada’s east coast, as tourists jostle for a glimpse of the mass of ice sitting in shallow water just off Newfoundland.
The iceberg, which has dwarfed the nearby small town of Ferryland, is estimated to measure some 46 metres (150ft) at its highest point. “It’s the biggest one I ever seen around here,” mayor Adrian Kavanagh told the Canadian Press. “It’s a huge iceberg and it’s in so close that people can get a good photograph of it.”
There are concerns about why this huge iceberg is floating in the ocean, but it is also an amazing sight!
