Emergency supplies have begun arriving
in the Manu'a Islands of American Samoa, which were devastated in a direct
hit from Cyclone Olaf last week.
United States President, George W. Bush,
has declared an emergency in the area where homes were destroyed, roads
wiped out and some crops flattened.
Although there were no casualties in
the storm, several people, including a pregnant woman, were evacuated when
flights resumed to the islands.
A US Coast Guard ship has delivered tents,
generators, lanterns, water, first aid kits, and blankets to the islands.
