The recent flooding and landslides in American Samoa is estimated to have caused over US $2 million in damages.
A team from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be on the territory in four weeks time to get a detailed assessment of the damages.
Director of Homeland Security, Utualii Iuniasolua Savusa, says the FEMA official on island over the weekend gave the
unofficial initial assessment of damages.
Utualii says all families who were displaced following the heavy rain have all either returned to their homes or are now living
with their relatives.
Governor Lolo Matalasi Moliga has urged Utualli and the cabinet to continue to provide assistance for the families.
Loans and financial assistance are available to the families through agencies such as the Development Bank ofAmerican Samoa and the Department of Youth and Women's Affairs.
