Icerbergs trapped in St. John’s Newfoundland

Icebergs trapped at Quidi Vidi

Up in a small fishing village outside of St. John’s Newfoundland an interesting happening, as an iceberg has been trapped in a rocky bay at Quidi Vidi. It is provided an unprecedented opportunity to see a live iceberg right up close. Onlookers are flocking to the location to catch a peak at the iceberg while it is so close to shore.

The Canadian Press reported that you could feel the effects on the berg in the air:

“You don’t get to see this kind of stuff out our way.”
