2 dead after Amazon building collapse in severe weather

Officials say a 50-foot wall at the warehouse collapsed.

"We did get reports that there was another person missing so throughout the night our members on the scene, were basically searching for that person", said Chief Roman Clark with Baltimore City Fire.

Amazon said the victims were "third-party contractors" and not Amazon employees.

The newspaper reported one man was pulled from the debris and pronounced dead at hospital, and the body of a second man was later found.

Two men died at an Amazon fulfillment center in Baltimore after a tornado struck the region on Friday, causing a partial collapse of a 50-foot wall at the facility.

"Due to the damage caused by the storm, deliveries associated with this package sortation center are experiencing delays", Amazon said in a statement. "The safety of our employees and contractors is our top priority, and at this time the building remains closed".

The National Weather Service had earlier warned of thunderstorms in the area, with some producing gusty winds and heavy rain. "Thank you to the emergency response teams who have been working through the night".

It left a track of intermittent damage, flipping over a tractor-trailer, ripping down part of the warehouse, and tearing off the roof of a nearby apartment complex in Dundalk, he said. "Our thoughts go out to all families impacted by this evening's severe weather".
