Yes, a tsunami hit American Samoa. How big it was and the extent of the devastation is still sketchy though.
A tsunami caused by a powerful earthquake in the South Pacific has killed at least three people and injured 50 in Samoa, officials said.

Three FM stations and three AM stations serve approximately 57,000 radios. One television station broadcasts over three channels to approximately 14,000 TV sets. It is owned by the Office of Public Information of the American Samoan government. Samoanet is the country's sole Internet service provider.
