Giant Iceberg Is Floating Past Canada, And It’s 50 Ft Larger Than The One That Sank Titanic



by Amanda Froelich; True Activist

A small fishing village in Newfoundland has attracted a flood of tourists after a giant iceberg parked itself in "Iceberg alley."

Over Easter weekend, a massive 150ft tall iceberg became visible near a small fishing village on the East coast of Canada. Soon after, the remote community in Newfoundland started overflowing with tourists who desire to witness the incredible formation.

An astounding 50 feet larger than the iceberg that sank the Titanic in 1912, the iceberg is attracting visitors from all over the world. This is good news for the small town of Ferryland, as the iceberg is presently parked in “Iceberg alley” and likely won’t move for a while. Of course, according to CBC, the town’s only two restaurants don’t open until the 24th of May.

Ferryland mayor, Aidan Kavanagh, told the Canadian Press:
“It’s the biggest one I have ever seen around here. It’s a huge iceberg and it’s in so close that people can get a good photograph of it.”
“When they come in along the shoreline, and go grounded, we are very happy about that,” added Kavanagh. This is because the majority of icebergs float past. When a large one gets caught in shallow waters, however, it attracts more tourists, meaning more money for the small town.

Approximately 616 icebergs have already moved into the shipping lanes this year. In 2016, 687 were spotted. Reportedly, the increase in icebergs is an effect of strong anti-clockwise winds and the effects of global warming, which is causing chunks of the Greenland ice sheet to break off at a faster rate.

Following are incredible images of the 150ft iceberg:
