MOBILE, Ala. -

Crew members from the Carnival Triumph were evacuated from the ship early Thursday morning to the Mobile Civic Center.

Around 2 a.m. The Salvation Army arrived at the Civic Center to serve and assist the evacuees. It is estimated that there are about 800 people currently being housed at the Civic Center, many are crew members of the Triumph.

The Salvation Army is serving sausage biscuits, coffee/hot chocolate, water, and snacks, in an effort to make the crews comfortable until they can board the ship again.

There were no injuries to anyone aboard Carnival Triumph and no damage to the vessel.  All workers were cleared to return to the ship earlier this morning.

The repair schedule for the Carnival Triumph remains unchanged and the ship is scheduled to resume service from Galveston, Texas, on June 13.
