An oil patch in North Dakota was hit by a tornado on Monday, devastating the site and the surrounding trailers. The terrifying scene was captured on video, as the twister set down at the Bakken Oilfield close to Watford City, coursing through the encampment for more than a minute. Nine people were reportedly injured, according to a Facebook page for the oilfield, with at least one - a 15-year-old girl - in critical condition.
On the video (bottom of the article), one woman shouts "oh my Jesus, help us God... we got nowhere to go" as the twister moves towards the horrified onlookers. According to local news sources, all the people in the oilfield have subsequently been accounted for.
