A tornado that ripped across part of North Dakota damaged an oil field camp and destroyed at least a dozen recreational vehicles, officials said.

Nine people were injured -- eight who suffered minor injuries, and one who was flown to Trinity Hospital in Minot, the sheriff's department said.

The tornado's path included an oil field camp five miles south of Watford City, the National Weather Service in Bismark said.

Dan Yorgason, one of the men in the camp, recorded the tornado approaching and sweeping through camp (warning: language)
