The first eyewitness accounts of the tsunami are now coming in

A resident of a Samoan coastal village says her home has already been destroyed by a Tsunami that followed the quake.

Theresa Falele Dussey has been evacuted to Mount Vaea in the Samoan capital of Apia.

"Our house has already been taken by the tsunami and some of the houses and cars next to our village have already been taken by the tsunami as well. People are just thankful that it's just the houses and the cars but not themselves, because they're already gone away from the coastal areas."

Samoa Resident, Theresa Falele Dussey.
