Radio DJ describes tsunami

Radio DJ Lupe Lohmann was at work at a station in American Samoa when the tsunami struck.

It was triggered by a strong quake in the South Pacific and has killed more than 100 people in Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga.

She said she was on air when she felt tremors and put an alert out and told people to head up to the mountains.
