Earthquake in Samoa

At 8.55am (NZ time) today, we received report that a tsunami hit Samoa.

At 9.05am, we heard that a 1.57m Tsunami wave hit Pago Pago American Samoa, heading 100m inland.

At 9.13am, deaths were reported. News came in that Fagaloa and Lalomanu were hit bad.

At 9.24am, we found out that pretty much the whole of Apia had been evacuated to higher ground.

We opened up a discussion in the village for natives to post reports from loved ones in Samoa, and to keep everyone updated about official news, mostly from the radio.

I’ll be compiling the information we received there into categorized posts here, so you can more easily find the information you’re looking for.

God Bless Samoa.
