Melting Glacier in Peru Triggers Tsunami (Video)

Global climate change is becoming the threat we all feared in Peru. Independent Television News has posted a video of how a large chunk of ice fell into an Andean lake, triggering a tsunami that may have killed three people.

The location of this disaster, Carhuaz, is very close to where one of the most tragic disasters occurred in modern world history. In 1970, a massive earthquake triggered a landslide that killed an estimated 25,000 people who lived in the city of Yungay.
