The Planpincieux glacier, located in the Alps on the Grande Jorasses peak of the Mont Blanc massif, is seen from the road leading to the Val Ferret, a popular hiking area on the south side of the Mont Blanc, near Courmayeur, northern Italy, Friday, Aug. 7, 2020. Experts are closely monitoring a glacier they fear could break apart and crash into an Italian Alpine valley. On Thursday, 75 residents and tourists in the Ferret valley were evacuated from their homes and two lodgings in the shadow of the glacier. The glacier's size has been likened to that of a soccer field under a 80-meter (265 foot) high mass of ice. Sharp shifts in temperature are blamed for the risk. (Claudio Furlan/LaPresse via AP)
