A Gigantic Iceberg Has Turned Up Off The Coast Of Canada

The icebergs are often locked into sea ice, which can last until late spring or early summer, but this one looks like it has grounded and could remain in place, Mayor Adrian Kavanagh told The Canadian Press.

The big iceberg is one of many that have passed by off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador this year.

A massive iceberg off the coast of Canada's Newfoundland is causing traffic jams as tourists rush to take photos of the ice mountain.

"The opportunity to get a good picture without actually going out in a boat is right here", Kavanagh said.

The first iceberg of the season passes the South Shore on April 16. The iceberg is so big it dwarfed a helicopter that recently appeared to land on it.

It's been a busy season for icebergs so far, with 616 already having moved into the North Atlantic shipping lanes compared to 687 by the late-September season's end past year. The rise in the movement of the bergs has been attributed to uncommonly strong counter-clockwise winds that are reportedly drawing the icebergs south. Experts believe that global warming, which is accelerating the Greenland ice sheet's shedding of ice, is also impacting iceberg movements.

It's already been a busy season in iceberg alley, with hundreds of icebergs reported in the Atlantic - many more than usual for this time of year in the coastal regions.
