Pago Pago, American Samoa, November 20, 2009 -- A passing car lights part of a large area of southwestern Tutuila island, including the Joint Field Office for Disaster 1859, that was without electricity for 55 minutes early Friday. The scheduled outage also affected the airport but was timed to occur after the bi-weekly flight to Honolulu had departed. The shutdown allowed circuits to be reconfigured for new generators being installed as part of America Samoa's recovery from the September 29, 2009 earthquake, tsunami and flooding.
