LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Five tsunami waves killed 14 people in American Samoa on Wednesday, a local radio announcer said by telephone from the South Pacific island.
“As of right now, everybody is up in the high mountain ranges,” said Senetenari Malele, announcer for local radio station Showers of Blessings. He said the local weather authority had released a statement with 14 dead in the last hour.
