Pacific Tsunami Galu Afi (Paperback)

By Wendt Young, Lani
Edited by Keil, Hans Joachim

On the 29th of Sept, 2009, an earthquake and resultant tsunami devastated the islands of Samoa, American Samoa and Northern Tonga, killing 189 people, wiping out entire villages and causing economic losses estimated conservatively at USD $200 million - making the Pacific Tsunami,... the deadliest documented tsunami in the entire region. A wave of rescue and relief assistance from many nations, organisations and individuals began almost immediately afterward. An informative, sensitively articulated and beautifully woven story about the 2009 Pacific Tsunami that shares the voices and experiences of survivors, rescuers, medical teams and aid workers. Not merely a documentary but an interconnected series of tales that records with color and feeling, a significant moment Pacific history. Includes the voices of survivors from NZ, Australia, the UK and Germany. Interwoven first-hand accounts from over 180 people.
