Carnival Twitter Confirms the Details:
Due to strong winds in Mobile, Carnival Triumph, which was docked @ Mobile shipyard, broke away from its moorings. US Coast Guard is on site
Carnival Triumph is now secure & expected to soon be moved to the Mobile Cruise Terminal.
According to reports, 2 workers on adjacent pier fell into water. One has reportedly been recovered by U.S. Coast Guard & other is missing.
Lines have moored the Carnival Triumph, and, as a precaution, tugboats will remain alongside the vessel.
All of the approx. 600 crew & 200 contractors who were onboard are safe & accounted for. There are no reports of injuries.
While assessment of damage to the ship is ongoing, initial indications suggest the damage is limited.
The search continues for the second pier worker. Our thoughts and prayers are with the missing shipyard employee and the family.
