Update On Recovery From Tsunami

National Park of American Samoa

National Park News

Tsunami recovery efforts by National Park of American Samoa crews continue in several partner villages. Some staff who have been assisting the villages with cleanup since the day the tsunami hit will return to work next week. The park marine resource crew assessed submerged resources near Tutuila Island on Wednesday, finding no damage to park coral reefs. Manu’a Island natural resource assessments are scheduled for next week. Specialists continue recovery and treatment of cultural resources. Critical incident stress management debriefings are complete although the peer support team will continue interacting with staff. The Western Incident Management Team (IC Ziemann) is beginning to transition operations back to the park. The team is setting up resources for long-term incident management. The park is working with GSA to locate temporary visitor contact facilities and office space. Park maintenance staff will rebuild the maintenance facility next week.
