Tornadoes have been synonymous with mobile homes and manufactured homes for as long as most can remember. This still stands true today as evidence of a recent tornado that touched down in northwestern North Dakota.
National Weather Service officials say a tornado caused the storm damage that ripped through a western North Dakota recreational vehicle park.
Weather Service meteorologist John Paul Martin classified the twister as an EF2, with wind speeds reaching 127 mph.
More than two dozen people were hurt when the tornado went through the Prairie View RV Park in Watford City shortly after midnight Tuesday.
McKenzie County Sheriff Gary Schwartzenberger says the storm went over his house and down into the park about half a mile away. He says the storm “devastated an entire community.”
Residents were being allowed into the park Tuesday afternoon. Cleanup operations were scheduled to resume Wednesday.
