Authorities are urging a small North Dakota town to evacuate after a train derailed today.

The mile-long train carried ten cars with crude oil which exploded after the collision.

Authorities said the National Weather Service is forecasting a shift in the weather that would push the smoke down. That could increase the risk of potential health hazards.

Shelters were set up for the residents and no one was hurt.
