    and the largest one to move towards New Zealand since 1970 is moving northward.

    But the news reporting is abysmal.  MSNBC says that icebergs have not come to New Zealand in 75 years.  Wrong.  Some quotes:

    Last year, icebergs were seen in New Zealand water for the first time in 56 years, but couldn't be seen from the shore. This year one was visible from Dunedin on South Island on Thursday.  MSNBC

    When icebergs last neared New Zealand in 2006, a sheep was helicoptered out to be shorn on one of the floes in a publicity stunt by the country's wool industry. Yahoo

    In 2006, a number of icebergs from the same broken shelf came within 16 miles (25km) of the coastline. Before that, the last sighting was in 1931.BBC
