ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A rockslide early Thursday damaged part of a cruise ship dock in the historic Klondike Gold Rush community of Skagway in southeast Alaska.

At least one cruise ship diverted from Skagway after the slide damaged part of the Railroad Dock.

Cruise ships are either using other docks or taking passengers by tenders to the nearby Small Boat Harbor, Jacqueline Taylor-Rose, a spokesperson for the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad said in an email to The Associate Press. The dock is owned by the rail line.

There were no injuries in the slide, she said.

Engineers arrived later Thursday to begin assessing the slide area. The dock remains closed to passenger and vehicle traffic.

After the hillside is evaluated, work will begin to repair pier damage.
