At about 6:48 a.m. SST on Tuesday (1:48 p.m. Eastern DT ) an earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 on the Richter Scale occurred 120 miles south-southwest from American Samoa, about 13 kilometers below the seabed. The earthquake was followed by a tsunami that produced several large waves causing major damage/destruction to the coastal areas of Tutuila and other islands of American Samoa. Within 48 hours the Federal Emergency Management Agency coordinated an air bridge from Hawaii to bring disaster relief.
