Rare icebergs spotted off New Zealand

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND - Icebergs have been sighted in New Zealand waters for the first time in 57 years, prompting a warning to shipping in the region.

Participants in a global yachting race have also been warned to stay away from the potentially dangerous chunks of ice.

The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research says 15 icebergs have been spotted in the Southern Ocean, about 700 kilometres off New Zealand's South Island.

Some of them measure up to three kilometres wide.

It is the first time icebergs have been spotted in local waters since 1948.


The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity. ~ Arthur J. Balfour
