Baltimore firefighters pulled one man out from under the wall debris Friday.
One of the two men was found under debris and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. It was not initially clear whether the person did not show up for work or possibly left before the incident.
Officials in Baltimore County reported that the roof on two apartment buildings were also blown off.
They found that a 50-by-50-foot wall had collapsed at the warehouse, according to Clark. Rachael Lighty, a spokesperson for Amazon, told ABC News in a statement that the two victims were third-party contractors and not Amazon employees. "The safety of our employees and contractors is our top priority, and at this time the building remains closed". "Thank you to the emergency response teams who have been working through the night". Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families impacted by last night's tragic event, ' the spokesperson added.
The fire department said the weather-related collapse happened at the Amazon Fulfillment Centre late Friday.
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.
