Storm Slams North Dakota City, Injuring Dozens

Authorities say more than two dozen people were hurt, three critically, when a violent storm whipped through a northwestern North Dakota city, trapping some people in overturned recreational vehicles.

The McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office says the storm moved through Watford City shortly after midnight Tuesday, hitting an RV park the hardest.

Sheriff’s officials say about 20 of the 28 injured were staying at the Prairie View RV Park where high winds overturned some campers and damaged mobile homes.
