Amazon fulfillment center in Baltimore

The Amazon Fulfillment Center was one of several buildings to suffer from storm-related damage. They used heavy equipment to shift debris including concrete and eventually found the second victim on Saturday morning at about 7.30am, according to the Baltimore Sun. They were told Friday night that one person was unaccounted for after they responded to the scene.

According to Rachael Lighty, Regional Manager of External Communications for Amazon Operations, the two victims were third-party contractors and not Amazon employees.

Chief Roman Clark said in a Baltimore Sun report a 50-foot wall at the Amazon Fulfillment Center collapsed Friday night as a storm hit the area. He said the power shut off and described the scene as "just insane inside".

Amazon released a statement Saturday about the incident. No other injuries were reported.
