2015 Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan for American Samoa
The Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) has approved a new update of American Samoa’s Territorial Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) for 2015-2020. Prepared and approved by the American Samoa Hazard Mitigation Council, the HMP describes and assesses risks related to flooding, landslides, coastal erosion, tropical storms, storm surges, climate change/sea level rise, and more. The new, five-year HMP includes a detailed hazard mitigation action agenda of recommended projects throughout the Territory. Through the American Samoa Coastal Management Program (ASCMP), the Department of Commerce will contribute to mitigating coastal hazards in the Territory over the next five years.
