In a recent post by CNN, a massive iceberg weighing more than one trillion tons has broken away from western Antarctica on Wednesday, July 12 2017. The break happened on the Larsen C ice shelf. Experts confirmed via satellite that the shelf had broken away. 

Scientists believe the iceberg has a volume twice that of Lake Erie in the United States and is estimated to span 2,239 square miles (which is around the same size as the state of Delaware).
