NORTH DAKOTA (CNN/PIX11) — Amateur photographers captured a scary scene with their cell phones as a massive North Dakota tornado bore down on them.
The tornado touched down at an oil patch six miles south of Watford City, destroying workers’ trailers and injuring 9.
The twister ravaged an area outside of the severe-weather risk zone.
8 trailers have been destroyed and 8 injured victims have been treated and released.
There is one person who was critically injured and still in treatment, according to officials.
McKenzie County Emergency Management Director Jerry Samuelson is leading efforts to go through all the debris from the storm.
Though Samuelson’s team is still searching the rubble, they don’t believe anyone else is missing.
