Breathtaking photos show massive icebergs floating by a seaside town

As a result, the iceberg - and any others that may join it - could drive tourism and related economic activity to the coastal town of Ferryland.

The iceberg-150 feet above the water at its tallest point-got stuck in the shallow waters off Ferryland, and it doesn't look like it's going to move anytime soon.

Icebergs off the coast of Ferryland, which has earned the name "iceberg alley" because of the large number of ice mountains that drift towards the shore each spring, are not an unusual sight for residents of the area.

A large iceberg passes the South Shore, also known as "Iceberg Alley", near Ferryland, Newfoundland, Canada April 16. Kavanagh was surprised by the influx of people and interest in the geological wonder.

A towering iceberg stationed off Newfoundland's east coast is drawing dozens of people to the small shoreline community sitting in its shadow. Those kinds of numbers are usually not seen until late May or early June.

Hundreds of people have made the trek from the surrounding area and St. John's, an hour's drive away, he said.

Trump said in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos that he was considering releasing his tax returns. But over a year ago, the IRS said , "Nothing prevents individuals from sharing their own tax information".

Kavanagh said he's hearing that the wind could pick up and that could mean more icebergs brushing by his town.

Strong anti-clockwise winds and the effects of global warming are being blamed for the high numbers, as chunks of the Greenland ice sheet have been breaking off at a quicker rate.

Canadian press reported that there had already been more icebergs than normal - with 616 already having moved into the North Atlantic shipping lanes compared to 687 by the late-September season's end a year ago.
