WATCH: 11 Million Ton Iceberg Approaches Town Of Innaarsuit, Greenland

An iceberg the size of a hill has drifted close to a tiny village on the western coast of Greenland, prompting fears it could swamp the settlement with a tsunami if it splits.

Video posted on social media on Thursday shows the iceberg towering over houses on a promontory in the village of Innaarsuit, when a massive chunk of ice slides off into the water sending big waves towards the village.

A danger zone close to the coast has been evacuated and people have been moved further up a steep slope where the settlement lies, a Greenland police spokesman said.

The Government and police are on high alert and have moved a search and rescue helicopter closer to the remote village of about 170 inhabitants.
