“A tsunami has devastated the coasts of Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga. On the morning of 30 September, the death toll was thought to be around 85 people, but this was expected to rise, according to the BBC. Many have been left homeless, and entire villages have been destroyed, says Samoa’s deputy prime minister Misa Telefoni.”
