Earthquake and Tsunami in Greenland

A tidal wave struck a settlement on the northwest coast of Greenland late on Saturday. As a result of an earthquake measuring 4.1 on the Richter Scale, a tsunami-like wave and flooding struck a remote hamlet about 30 km from the village of Nuugaatsiaq in Greenland two days ago. The authorities are now busy evacuating the inhabitants, and so far 39 out of the village’s estimated 100 residents have been taken to Uummanaq. Reports indicate there have been a number of people killed, but so far the police have not released any casualty figures.
