Washington D.C. [USA] July 11(ANI): As many as 28 people were hurt, including three critically injured after a tornado hit a North Dakota oil patch city overnight.

The storm which moved through Watford City, hit an RV park the hardest, wounding about 20 people here alone.

The strong winds overturned campers and damaged homes.

As reported by Fox News, National Weather Service meteorologist John Paul Martin classified the tornado as an EF2, which is defined by winds speeds between 111 and 135 mph.

McKenzie County Sheriff's Department said that almost 122 structures in the park were completely destroyed, reported Fox News.

The park will be shut down and cleanup operations will resume Wednesday morning. (ANI)
