A larger shipwreck is located right beside the road in Āmouli. Locals say the vessel ran aground with a full load of fish, and when it overturned, it spilled its cargo within reach of villagers to gather it.[4][5]

Dr. Charles Fletcher of the University of Hawaii Manoa has conducted a sea level study of Āmouli village. He was the keynote speaker at American Samoa’s first climate change summit in 2011, where he revealed that land in the village near the sea could be covered by water within ten years.[6]
