2009 Tsunami Pago Harbor

As the waters rose in Pago Pago Harbor on Sept. 29, 2009 this was the scene recorded by Richard Madsen onboard the sailing vessel Barbarella as it was swept beyond the banks of the harbor and across the adjacent soccer field at the foot of the mountains. Today is the 4th anniversary of that tragic event. More photos below. [photo: Richard Madsen]
