Usually when large icebergs come close to land they draw people from far and near.

One iceberg in Greenland is having the opposite effect.

The tiny Greenalnd community of Innaarsuit has been evacuated over a massive 11 million ton iceberg.

Researchers say there is a risk that a large chunk could break off and crash into the ocean sending a wall of water toward the tiny community of 161 people.

Innaarsuit is an island settlement in the Avannaata municipality in northwestern Greenland. Located on an island of the same name.
