Official: North Dakota tornado injured 9 people
WATFORD CITY, N.D. - An emergency management official says a tornado that struck a North Dakota oil worker camp injured nine people, one of them critically.
McKenzie County Emergency Management Director Jerry Samuelson says the tornado that struck the camp about 5 miles south of Watford City on Monday destroyed eight trailers where workers lived.
Samuelson says rescue crews are searching a large amount of debris, but he's confident no one is missing. Hesays the camp where the tornado hit had quite a few more trailers just a few days ago, so the casualties could have been higher had it happened earlier.
He says the person who was critically injured was taken to a larger hospital in Minot for treatment.
