‘A68′ iceberg the size of Delaware threatens South Georgia Island

Will it actually hit the island?

A giant iceberg the size of the U.S. state of Delaware is floating toward the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia, raising fears it could indirectly endanger young wildlife.

The giant iceberg, named A68, has been floating north since it broke off from the Larsen C ice shelf in July 2017, the Antarctic Survey said.

South Georgia, located in the southern Atlantic Ocean, is a British overseas territory.
