Responding to the Samoa and Sumatra Earthquakes

Two major earthquakes struck beneath the Pacific and Indian Oceans on Sept. 29 and 30, respectively. The first caused a tsunami affecting islands in the Samoan archipelago, including American Samoa, and the subsequent quake hit Sumatra, with both causing major damage. USGS analysts at the National Earthquake Information Center quickly responded to these events and their many aftershocks, issuing a range of rapid earthquake information products to support emergency response and relief operations. The USGS is the lead federal government agency for earthquake monitoring in the United States and around the globe. Where exactly did these two earthquakes hit? What is the damage? Were they related? These questions are answered in a podcast interview with USGS National Earthquake Information Center Scientist-in-Charge Harley Benz, available at usgs.gov/corecast.
