Today, Samoans bury those that can be found of the 176 people who died in the recent tsunami. Spare a thought or word of sympathy for people of Samoan heritage today for their national loss.
Other recent disasters in the Pacific are earthquakes in Indonesia, Sumatra, and Vanuatu and flooding in the Phillipines, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos.
