MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A 15-year-old girl injured when a tornado struck a worker camp in the western North Dakota oil patch is improving at a Minot hospital.

Trinity Health spokeswoman Mary Muhlbradt says the girl has been moved out of the intensive care unit, and her condition has been upgraded from critical to good.

The family has not yet agreed to the release of any other information, including the girl's name. Authorities say she is from out of state, and was visiting an aunt and uncle in the worker camp near Watford City when it was hit by a tornado Monday night and she suffered a head injury.

The twister damaged or destroyed 15 trailers. Eight other people were treated at a Watford City hospital for lesser injuries.
