I just got word today that one of my family members died in the Tsunami in American Samoa. He was fishing on a boat and didn't get the Tsunami warning when the 20 foot wave took his boat under. Reports of the first wave was said to touch the power lines which is roughly 20 feet.  So far that is the casualty report for me and I have many family members on both American and Western Samoa Islands and the power is not fully back up yet to make emails or calls. I hope there's no more. RIP to everyone  that got taken away by the wave.  :'(

This is a video of the 2nd wave which was didn't move as fast or violent as the 1st 20 foot one.

My condolences. I know how hard it is on the Samoan community here in So Cal. There's a Samoan church right down the street from me and it's been extremely crowded all week.

My prayers..
