This photo taken Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2009, shows the fishing boat “Gogosina” on Beach Road in Pago Pago, American Samoa. A magnitude 8.0 quake struck early Tuesday morning, and sent giant waves crashing down on the islands. “Gogosina” is the Samoan word for the seabird also known as a tern. (AP Photo/Bruce Leiataua)
