This spring, Canada’s “Iceberg Alley” is living up to its name. Tourists are flocking to the town of Ferryland to see the behemoth that has grounded just off shore.
The iceberg towers over the picturesque town on the east coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Canadian Ice Service classified it as “large.” This means it has a height of 151-240 feet and is between 401 and 670 feet long.
Iceberg season runs from spring through late summer. The waters start to refreeze in mid-September. A combination of currents bring Arctic ice southward along the Newfoundland coast. This is how it earned the “Iceberg Alley” nickname.
CNN Meteorologist Brandon Miller said an iceberg this large so close to the shore is rare.
