At least two people died in the partial collapse of an Amazon.com Inc distribution warehouse in Baltimore caused by severe weather, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and the company said on Saturday. He was taken to the hospital, where he was then declared dead.

A 50-by-50-foot wall collapsed at the facility, which is located in southeast Baltimore, at around 10:30 p.m. on Friday.

News reports cite Baltimore fire officials as saying one man was found under debris Friday night and later pronounced dead, while a second man's body was recovered early Saturday.

"Due to the damage caused by Friday evening's severe weather, deliveries associated with this package sortation center are experiencing delays".
