The seven islands that compose the U.S. territory of American Samoa are at risk from a variety of natural hazards. To mitigate the impact, NOAA and the American Samoa Coastal Management Program developed on online hazard assessment tool for Tutuila. The tool displays flood, landslide, earthquake, and tsunami data, all useful when evaluating potential risk. (2016)
