A tornado that critically injured a 15-year-old girl and hurt eight other people at a workers' camp in the heart of North Dakota's booming oil patch was an EF-2, the National Weather Service said Tuesday.

The twister touched down Monday night at a camp just south of Watford City, about 50 miles southeast of Williston, and damaged or destroyed 15 trailers.
