Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — The Nadi Weather Service in Fiji has now named Tropical Cyclone 10F (18P) as Tropical Cyclone Wasi.

Winds are forecast to increase later tonight and into Saturday morning for American Samoa. Also, rain is expected to be heavy and consistent at times which could trigger additional mudslides throughout the Territory. Seas will build to dangerous levels overnight.

Current headlines:
- Tropical Storm Warning

- Flash Flood Watch

Again, kindly reminding of the difference in terminology between the 2 Samoas with similar wind range. A tropical storm is a tropical cyclone.
