High Surf Warning Issued

1:41 pm, Sept 6: The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Warning for Tutuila, Aunu’u, and Manu’a. This is due to dangerous surf of 14 to 16 feet, which will impact coastal waters, especially east and south shorelines through Monday due to a large southerly swell.

Extremely dangerous rip currents, possible coastal inundation, and steep surf could capsize small vessels heading nearshore.

The American Samoa Department of Homeland Security – TEMCO will continue to monitor the situation and will issue further bulletins as necessary. Report any weather related incidents to the EOC at 699-3800/6990411 or the Police at 633-1111.
