Ice leaves East waiting
Sea ice has residents of a town on the eastern coast are left waiting for provisions.
Narsaq on Greenland’s east coast will have to wait a little longer to get much needed provisions after the ‘Nuka Arctica’ was forced to turn back from southern Greenland due to large amounts sea ice.
The goods, which were due to be delivered on 7 July, have now been sailed back to Nuuk to be transferred on to the ‘Irena Arctica’ for redelivery. It is now hoped that Royal Arctic Line will be able to deliver the goods on 14 July.
Towns on Greenland’s eastern coast are dependent on ship deliveries, and communities often run out of certain goods leading up to the next expected arrival.
