An 11-million ton iceberg, perched off the coast of a tiny Greenland village, is striking fear in the hearts of residents.
Last June, according to Quartz, a landslide caused by a 4.1 magnitude quake that struck 27 kilometres north of the village of Nuugaatsiaq partly triggered a tsunami that washed away 11 homes and killed four people.
A monumentally huge iceberg is floating dangerously close to a Greenland community whose residents fear a devastating tsunami if the ice mountain breaks apart in warming weather.
Joerg Schaefer, a climate researcher at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, told the New York Times that it's not a peaceful process, and Karl Petersen, chair for the local council in Innaarsuit, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp that the villagers are very concerned and afraid.
Innaarsuit is about 620 miles north of Greenland's capital, Nuuk. Hogg has spent a lot of time doing research near the village that's now under threat from the iceberg, and says this adds to the risk of a potential tidal wave or flooding.

Boeing, SpaceX delays have NASA scrambling for crew contingency plan
A House report accompanying H.R. 5393 included a provision for GAO to review the progress of NASA's human exploration programs. GAO is also concerned about inconsistencies in how different parts of NASA view the Loss of Crew safety metric.
"All the people in the danger area have been evacuated to a building that is further up in the village".
A June 22 video of the incident was taken by his wife, Denise Holland of NYU's Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory.
"I'd be the first to get out of there", David Holland, a New York University oceanographer told National Public Radio.
He said "it sounded like rockets going off " and described it as a very "complex, chaotic, noisy event".
Officials have said they've never seen an iceberg so big, so have evacuated the homes of those living nearest to it.
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. Last year, a tsunami devastated another village on Greenland's west coast.
