Watch: 300-foot iceberg floats near Greenland village

Innaarsuit, GREENLAND (WTVD) -- A 300-foot tall iceberg got dangerously close to a village off the coast of Innaarsuit, off western Greenland.

Nearby residents were evacuated on July 12 after the iceberg started to float within 100 meters of the village.

Villagers told the Greenlandic Broadcasting Corporation that they had never seen such a large iceberg so close to the island before.

Experts believe it is headed north, away from the island.
