ND Tornado - Injuries

May 27, 2014 at 6:25 am

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.
