LIMA, Peru, April 16 — NASA has warned that a glacier in Peru’s Andes mountains could break apart and cause an avalanche in a populated valley, but geologists said Wednesday the U.S. agency was being alarmist. The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration said this week its Terra satellite had detected an “ominous crack” in the Cupi glacier, calling it a “potential glacial disaster-in-the-making” near the tourist town of Huaraz, 168 miles north of Lima.
