By:Robert Suhr

Watford City - After a deadly tornado hit Watford City last July, McKenzie County and Watford City leaders are looking at new ways to keep people safe when the skies darken.
Watford City is one of North Dakota's fastest growing communities, jumping over 50-percent since 2010...you can thank the oil boom for that.
But with new neighbors come new challenges...like, making sure everyone knows how to act and what to do when severe weather, especially Tornadoes strike.

The Buzz

In Watford I got to go to my first National Park. I made some friends and we went to the badlands and saw things we never heard of before like jackrabbits and mule deer. In my opinion Watford is the best city ever!
