Massive iceberg seen in Newfoundland

NEWFOUNDLAND (KGO) -- An iceberg has become a tourist attraction in Newfoundland.

Tourists are flocking there to see a massive one that has parked itself off the coast. Scientists estimate the icy behemoth is at least 150 feet tall and nearly 670 feet long -- and that's just the part above water.

More than three times the amount of icebergs expected in a typical year have been spotted in the trans-Atlantic shipping lanes. The area is known as Iceberg Alley.
