The aftermath of a powerful earthquake is seen in Pago Pago
village, on American Samoa Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2009. The
quake in the South Pacific hurled massive tsunami waves at
the shores of Samoa and American Samoa, flattening villages
and sweeping cars and people back out to sea while leaving
scores dead and dozens missing.
