MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Mobile Mayor Sam Jones said officials were never asked if the city could accommodate distraught passengers aboard Carnival's Triumph.

The ship is currently running on backup generators. Passengers are complaining of deplorable conditions including problems with sewage on the ship.
Reports are that Carnival will bus the passengers to New Orleans with some possibly even going back to Texas, where the ship left from.
