(FOX NEWS) – Tornadoes and severe storms swept across several states Friday night, leaving in their wake several deaths, numerous injuries and severe structural damage, according to reports.

Major incidents included heavy damage to an Amazon warehouse in Edwardsville, Illinois, where dozens of workers were reportedly trapped inside the building, and the destruction of a nursing home in Arkansas, where at least two people were killed and five were hurt, according to reports.
The Amazon collapse – just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis – was being called a “mass casualty incident” by local emergency responders, but specific details on possible deaths or injuries weren’t immediately reported, according to The Associated Press.
