A 100-meter high iceberg has threatened a tiny settlement in Greenland, prompting a partial evacuation of its residents for fear of tsunami.

The Innaarsuit island settlement on Greenland's west coast has been advised of the danger of the iceberg calving.

In a recent time-lapse video by New York University scientists, a massive iceberg is seen breaking free from the Helheim Glacier on East Greenland, resulting in 3 percent of the annual ice loss of the world's largest island in just 30 minutes.
