Don't miss the annual Tattoo Festival at Tisa's Barefoot Bar at Alega Beach. Hosted by Tisa, herself, this is one of the most publicized annual events in American Samoa. Tattoo artists from abroad and from American Samoa showcase their skills and share their experiences in this once a year event.
Read about it at Frommer's Travel Guide site:

FEMA is switching from a disaster relief footing to a recovery footing in the coming week. The worst is so far over and people are still a bit twitchy. Yesterday a tsunami warning had most locals heading for the hills, literally. The warning was canceled about 20 minutes before the tsunami was supposed to hit American Samoa.
I have photos of the initial damage from the day of the tsunami on Flickr.
