Earthquake hits American Samoa

(UPDATED) A 8.3 earthquake has hit American Samoa where Maryknoll Bishop Quinn Weitzel lives. The earthquake may be big enough to spawn a tsunami of between 10~15 feet, according to MSNBC. So far minimal damage has been reported, mostly electricity outages. A 5 ft. wave has struck Western Samoa. A 2 ft. wave would be strong enough to sweep you out to sea, according to MSNBC. Pago-Pago (where Bishop Weitzel lives) reports only minor damage.

Please keep him and all the Samoans and Pacific Islanders in your prayers.
