Amateur footage out of North Dakota shows what it’s like to get caught in a tornado after one tore through an oil field workers’ camp Monday.

Nine people, including a 15-year-old girl, were sent to the hospital after the tornado passed, the Associated Press reports. McKenzie County Emergency Manager Jerry Samuelson said the girl, who suffered a head injury and was in intensive care, is expected to survive.

The tornado, a rare event for North Dakota, reached wind speeds of up to 120 miles per hour and destroyed 15 trailers near Watford City.
