STRONG LANGUAGE! Not Safe for Work!

We do NOT recommend that you try this at home! According to the New York Daily News, Dan Yorgason was in his trailer on Monday evening when a massive tornado touched down near his Watford City, N.D., home. It was a rare EF-2 tornado (rare in North Dakota anyway). According to some meteorologists, lucky for Dan and his buddies it was such a weak tornado. It only takes winds of 80 mph to pick up a vehicle and toss it.

Dan was not laughing because he thought it was funny. "I was laughing a lot, but it was not because I thought it was funny. I was panicking," Yorgason told the newspaper. "I knew I had to get out of there. You know how trailer parks are with tornadoes."

Nine people were injured in the storm; one of them critically, reports The Associated Press.

Monday's tornado has prompted a discussion about better storm safety in North Dakota. No sirens or local alert system warned people of the approaching twister, the AP reports; and "even with warning, there are scant places to take cover in the wide-open plain."
