  • North Dakota RV Park Hit by Severe Storm, Injuring Dozens

Dozens were injured in a small North Dakota town after a severe storm packing wind gusts up to 59 miles per hour hit an RV Park causing "substantial damage" and "widespread destruction", including flipped and shredded RVs overnight Monday.

According to the sheriff's office, the storm hit an RV park and trapped multiple people.

North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum will travel to Watford City later today to survey the Prairie View RV, KXMB reports.

A shelter was set up at the Civic Center - and many people showed up with tales of a brush with a very unsafe storm.

More than 120 structures at the RV park and its surroundings were destroyed, and about 200 people have been displaced, emergency workers said.

'It's just like an oversized RV park on steroids, ' Jappe said. RVs flipped over. Trucks underneath RVs, ' Jappe said.


McKenzie County Sheriff Gary Schwartzenberger says the storm went over his house and down into the park about half a mile away.

'It's a tornado scene, ' Schwartzenberger said. Schwartzenberger earlier said the storm "devastated an entire community". I feel for the families'. The Bismarck Tribune says Schwartzenberger reported to Gov. Doug Burgum and other officials late Tuesday that the boy was the son of Marisa Reber and Will Maguire. Cleanup operations were scheduled to resume Wednesday.

'Obviously they are going to be stressed out by what they see because it was pitch black when it first happened, ' Schwartzenberger said.

He has been staying along with dozens of others at the Watford City Civic Center where the Red Cross has established a shelter.

Sanford said the extent of the damage is 'devastating and mind-boggling, with RVs utterly flattened and destroyed'.
