S61-a helicopter flew over the place where a large piece of the mountain and skidded in the water and triggered a tsunami wave.

Right next door is a further part of the cliffside too close to take. It is the which is the reason that also Illorsuit and Niaqornat was evacuated in the night.
Inspektionsskibet aries is set to observe the cliffside.
Arctic Command will also provide that, in the course of today will get a Challenger aircraft and a Hercules as reinforcement.
They should also be used to search and transport. On the one hand they help with the footage to get an overview of the damage and to assess the danger of further natural disasters.
Here you can also see the helicopter footage of the fjeldskredet:
