Giant Iceberg Heading For Tierra Del Fuego

Monday, October 04, 1999
A giant iceberg, 40 miles (66 km) long and 11 miles (18 km) wide, is reportedly floating toward Tierra Del Fuego, the tip of South America, causing Chilean authorities to warn of possible danger to ships rounding Cape Horn. Known as B-10A, the flat-topped iceberg that looks like a huge, irregular piece of sliced white bread, is the larger of two frozen masses that split off from the Antarctic in 1992.
