Tropical Cyclone Amos Rapidly Intensifying; Will Impact Samoa, American Samoa This Weekend
22 april 2016 -

Rapidly intensifying Tropical Cyclone Amos will make a close pass to Samoa and American Samoa this weekend and may be the strongest tropical cyclone to brush the islands in a decade.

A tropical cyclone warning has been issued for the Independent state of Samoa, and a tropical storm watch is in effect for American Samoa, including Pago Pago.

Tropical Cyclone Amos rapidly intensified to the equivalent of a Category 2 hurricane, and is now beginning to exhibit a more distinct eye in infrared satellite imagery, previously only discernible in microwave imagery.
