That's how an Amazon employee describes to WBAL what happened Friday night at one of the company's fulfillment centers in southeast Baltimore after the building partially collapsed.

Fire officials responded to a call about a potential collapse of the Amazon Fulfillment Center building at around 10:30 p.m. on Friday night.

Friday night's storm system produced an EF-1 tornado that touched down in Baltimore City and County, producing winds of over 100 miles per hour and knocking down part of an Amazon.com warehouse, killing two people.

Baltimore fire chief Roman Clark initially said one person was dead at the hospital and another missing, but the missing person was found dead under heavy debris early Saturday morning.

A second victim was found about an hour later, he said. We are working with emergency responders to assess the damage and we are thankful for their quick response this evening. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by yesterday's tragic event".
