Dead After Wall Collapses at Amazon Distribution Center

Dead After Wall Collapses at Amazon Distribution Center

Officials said a 50ft wall at the warehouse collapsed.

At least two people are dead after a partial building collapse on Friday night at an Amazon warehouse in Baltimore.

Amazon spokeswoman Rachael Lighty attributed the collapse to "severe weather" in a statement sent to multiple media outlets.

"Last night, severe weather impacted one of our Baltimore facilities resulting in two fatalities", Dave Clark, Amazon's senior vice president of operations, said on Twitter.

The first man was found under some debris and was transported to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead from his injuries.

Strong storms and intense winds passed through Maryland Friday evening, apparently contributing to the collapse of a 50-foot wall at the Amazon Fullfillment Center in Southeast Baltimore at about 10.30pm.

Amazon closed the entire building following the wall collapse.

They were not Amazon employees, but third-party contractors. The safety of our employees and contractors is our top priority and we have safely evacuated the building.

No others are reported missing.

The Weather Service's report came after it sent damage-assessment teams to the Baltimore/Dundalk area and to Mount Airy to see whether tornadoes had touched down there.

The tornado blew off a section of the roof of what Amazon calls its Baltimore sortation center, near the city's eastern border in Dundalk.
