GATLINBURG (WATE) -- A mudslide Tuesday morning damaged part of the Westgate Smoky Mountain Resort in Gatlinburg, forcing a family to relocate.

The 70 acre resort is located at 915 Garden Road, off Wiley Oakley Drive. 

No one was injured when heavy rain sent mud down onto one of the cabins at the resort around 9:30 a.m.

The mud broke out a window and ran into the cabin's living room and bedroom.

Management at the resort moved the family of four, visiting from Pennsylvania, to another cabin.

Clean up efforts are underway.

It's not clear yet if there's any more danger from mudslides.
