  • National Weather Service confirms North Dakota city struck by tornado

Dozens were injured in an RV park in Watford City, North Dakota, when tornado caused widespread destruction.

In this Tuesday, July 10, 2018 photo, Louis Vallieres searches for clothes and valuables through the wreckage of his mobile home in the Prairie View RV Park in Watford City, N.D., after a tornado whipped through the North Dakota oil patch city overnight, overturning recreational vehicles and demolishing more than 100 structures, officials said Tuesday.

Karolin Jappe, the McKenzie County emergency manager, said all of the sirens functioned properly, including one within blocks of the RV park. The office did not identify the baby. "It went through and devastated an entire community down there".

The storm moved through Watford City shortly after midnight, hitting an RV park the hardest, according to sheriff's officials.

The McKenzie County Sheriff's Office reports at least 28 people were injured, three people were flown by air ambulance and at least six people are in critical condition.

Severe wind threats will shift south by Thursday and threats of storms will then impact portions of southern Minnesota, northern Iowa and central Wisconsin.

"Four years ago, $42,000 was raised for tornado victims with donations coming from across North Dakota and Montana", Jappe said.

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and Lieutenant Gov. Brent Sanford both toured the destruction Tuesday.

The NWS rated the North Dakota tornado an EF-2, the second-strongest on the five-step Enhanced Fujita scale. There were no tornado-related fatalities in May and June, the two most active and notorious months for tornadoes in the U.S.

"My dog was with me and the next thing you knew the storm picked up my camper and slammed it on the ground".

"It was just unbelievable the donations we'd get in", she said.

Watkins says clearing up the bulk of the debris will allow for other necessary activities to be completed at the park by utility personnel and the owner. The Red Cross is opening a resource center at the Watford City Civic Center for individuals and families affected by the storm, which will be open from 9 a.m.to 7 p.m. Thursday.
