Cyclone Rene meets Samoa in the tropics
Samoa, PAGO PAGO - A Pacific gale blast that raged over thinly inhabited American Samoa and targeted the US territories capitol area on Saturday, still recuperating from a fatal fall sunbath. Cyclone Rene struck the east Manu'a Island of the country on Friday before gaining speed, with the wind speed increasing to 138 km/h and 166 km/h in the early hours of the night.
Some Manu'a dwellers accessed by telephone through the associated press said the winds person been extremely high, but they have not heared of any reports of injury or main harm. "They are beaten from behind," says Mase Akapo Jr. of the National Weather Service in Pago Pago.
Carol Baqui in Pago Pago said that Rene twirled around the Manu'a for a while before "finally settling in the north". Officers also said there was a fatality induced by Rene -- a 50-year-old man dead Friday morning after dropping from a two-story edifice while casing it up to the shelter it from the wind.
" Commenting on the September tidal wave that struck more than 200 Samoan and Tonga Islanders, Gulafono said: "As we are recovering from the September 29, it is a good sense that we have given high precedence to helping others to help themselves by creating and disseminating the messages of contingency consciousness.
" It can also endanger Samoa, Tokelau Islands, Tonga and Fiji. Prognostic Diani Donu, at the Nadi Tropical in Fiji, said Rene will come by about 145 kilometers south-east of Apia, the near Samoa capitol, and will bring powerful storms and rough sea. Centres said before that the Tonga-Fiji cycle could happen to avoid a straight shot.
New Zealand's Red Cross supported the preparation for Tonga, Nuie and the Cook Islands. On Friday, the people of Tutuila nailed up their window and candlelight. The majority of large companies shut down on Friday, as did all government and non-governmental colleges. For the ships sailing to Pago Pago, the U.S. Coast Guard advised to divert the route.
Hurricane Heta, the last large clone that broke through the area, struck Samoa and American Samoa in January 2004 and damaged more than 4,600 houses in American Samoa, the American Red Cross said back then. She also ravaged up to 90 percent of the harvests on Samoa.
