A newborn baby was killed and more than two dozen people were injured when a tornado whipped through a North Dakota oil patch city overnight, overturning recreational vehicles and demolishing more than 100 structures, officials said Tuesday. The storm moved through Watford City, in the northwestern part of the state, shortly after midnight, hitting an RV park the hardest, according to sheriff’s officials.
About 20 of the reported 28 injured were staying at the Prairie View RV Park where high winds overturned some campers and damaged mobile homes. The McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release late Tuesday that a 1-week-old boy died from injuries sustained when the family’s trailer home flipped in the storm. The child’s name was not immediately released. CONTINUE
