CHEROKEE, NC (WSPA) Crews are working on a ramp collapse that happened at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort parking garage.

Sherri Booth, a spokesperson for the casino says the structure failed on the first floor ramp, leading up to the second floor.

The casino says one person had a minor injury.

A safety assessment is progress because Booth says “The safety of our employees and guests is our primary concern.”

An engineering study is set to begin later today and may take several days.

They say that guests are asked to park in the surface lots on the west side of the casino and other alternative parking areas are being identified.

Casino employees will be moved off-site to allow convenient parking for guests.

According to their website, a World Series of Poker circuit event is being played there now.
