Scientists have warned that the melting of Alaska glacier could prompt an unprecedented 'mega-tsunami'. The researchers claimed that the catastrophic event may take place within the next 12 months if the melting glaciers trigger landslides.

According to scientists, if such an event does not take place within the next 12 months, then the mega-tsunami is likely to occur within the next 20 years.
