NORTHWOOD, N.D. — Midwest states battered by severe flooding during the past week were mopping up Mother Nature's mess Monday, as North Dakota and Michigan surveyed the damage wrought by tornadoes that whipped through those states over the weekend.
In Northwood, N.D., one person was killed and at least 17 injured when a twister destroyed a 19-unit trailer court, uprooted trees and damaged homes and businesses, including a nursing home and grain elevator, officials and witnesses said.
"This town is a mess. This town is a disaster," said Kevin Dean, a spokesman for an emergency operations center that responders set up in the city fire hall. "There's virtually nothing ... that hasn't been damaged."
