According to reports, this iceberg is approximately 150 feet high and is estimated to be at least 50 feet larger than the iceberg that sank the legendary Titanic.

The Daily Mail reports that:

The area of Canada’s east coast by Newfoundland and Labrador is known as Iceberg Alley due to the large number of the 10,000-year-old glacial giants which drift down from the arctic each spring.

With the random weather patterns we have experienced here in Western New York this winter and spring, it’s apparent that we are not alone. The warmer spring air has made for the right conditions for these massive chunks of ice to break off and drift down the Atlantic. it’s similar to the way that the ice flows travel down the Niagara River following the removal of the ice boom in Lake Erie after a Buffalo winter.

The ice boom on Lake Erie has been out since mid March and is used to prevent large chunks of ice from clogging the water intake for the power company.

Although the large icebergs on Canada’s eastern coast are a beautiful sight and make for a great video, icebergs can also cause trouble for some of the shipping companies that travel these waters. The iceberg flow has begun a bit ahead of schedule and the ships have had to maneuver around them.
