American Samoa's government has received its second payment from insurer Lloyds of London for damages suffered from Cyclone Gita in February 2018.
Governor Lolo Moliga said a payment of $US3.2 million had been received and he was hopeful the insurer would pay another $5 million.
Insurance Commissioner Peter Fuimaono confirmed to KHJ News the payment was received a few days before Thanksgiving.
Lloyds also made an initial payment of $5 million.
Fuimaono said the government's total claim was for $15 million.
Meanwhile, American Samoa is also to receive $US23 million from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The grant is part of the federal government's long-term disaster recovery assistance following Tropical Cyclone Gita last year.
The funding comes through a special appropriation passed by Congress in 2019 in response to major disasters.
