Following is an excerpt from Reuters – Six d**d, no hope of more survivors after tornadoes destroy Amazon warehouse

Dec 11 (Reuters) – Six Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) workers were confirmed d**d on Saturday after a series of tornadoes roared through a warehouse near St. Louis, ripping off its roof and causing 11-inch thick concrete walls longer than football fields to collapse on themselves.

At least 45 Amazon employees made it out safely from the rubble of the 500,000-square-foot Edwardsville, Illinois, facility, fire chief James Whiteford said. Authorities had given up hope of finding more survivors as they shifted from rescue to recovery efforts that were expected to last days.

Tornadoes ripped through six U.S. states Friday night, leaving a trail of d**th and destruction at homes and businesses stretching more than 200 miles.

The Amazon facility was hit about 8:38 p.m. central time, Whiteford said. The force of the winds was so severe the roof was ripped off and the building collapsed on itself.

Witnesses said workers were caught by surprise and forced to take shelter anywhere they could find.

“I had a coworker that was sending me pictures when they were taking shelter in the bathroom, basically anywhere they could hide,” said Alexander Bird, who works at a warehouse across the street. People had to think on their feet quick.”

    Okay so I'm going to tell you my story about Amazon. I worked for Amazon for 7 months and the whole 7 months I was there we had one fire not really alert but they had all of us new employees stand in this one part of the building and they were showing us around they showed us the area downstairs and the area upstairs to where we were all supposed to come to if there was some kind of a storm And that was it they never talked to us about fire drills or anything else after that. Now on to the juicy part when you work at Amazon there is this thing called TOT it stands for time off task. When you work in a warehouse everybody pretty much works on a computer and you have to log in when you leave to go to the bathroom you have to log out and go to the bathroom and then when you come back you log back in because they want to know how long you've been gone to go to the freaking bathroom. And if you have too much of this time off task which people do have bathroom issues as myself and that's why I'm going to tell you what happened to me. When you spend too much on time off task you get first a warning then you get written up every time you're taking too long on TOT. I was having issue with my meds and I had I'm not kidding you almost 3 months of liquid come out of me because the med gave me diarrhea. I had to go to the bathroom a lot I didn't know when it was going to come in the bathrooms for literally on the other side of the building it takes you 5 minutes to get to the bathroom. Then you got to go to the bathroom then you got to come back from the bathroom and that's another 5 minutes. I got wrote up three times because of this and I told my supervisor all about what was going on with me before at the beginning of what was going on with me so he knew. But he still wrote me up and when I asked him that he said it's protocol. It's protocol the time people to go to the freaking bathroom really? Wasn't that a god-given right for us to go to the bathroom when we want or need to and not be penalized for it. I had friends that got hurt on the job and they had this thing called amcare which is ridiculous because if you get hurt on the job you go down to amcare they give you biofreeze and Ibuprofen and tell you to get back to work. I had friends that had broken feet broken bones ripped muscles and they tell you to get back to work. Hello maybe I might need a hospital from working here and you're going to tell me to get back to work?. Then when people do get hurt and you go down to amcare a lot of that stuff gets let's say somebody goes back into the computer and writes what they want in the employees records. And I'm wondering if that happened to me because I hurt my shoulder real bad at work one time and I went down to amcare they gave me an ice pack they put bio freeze on it and then they gave me some ibuprofen and told me to get it back to work. When I went back to work my shoulder was hurting me so bad that I was in tears and when my supervisor came up and asked me what was wrong I told him I was in a lot of pain and he said well tomorrow let's see how it feels. Really they're going to ask me that while I'm standing there trying to work and I can't move my arm. When I went on break I logged out for the day and didn't go back because when you work at Amazon you're allowed to leave anytime you want but you just don't get paid for it and they take time off of your unpaid time which is UPT. I remember when I came home that day my boyfriend asked me what was wrong with my shoulder and I explained it to him and he just shook his head. Oh and another time a girl was working trying to get a tote from underneath the belt that was stuck and a little bit of her hair got caught in the track above her and she was luckily able to pull it out and within the hour she was back working. What did amcare do for her?

    I was on long-term disability through Amazon for two and a half years well first I did my 6 month short term and then I got 2 years long-term and now I'm trying to fight for disability because I'm unable to work with my physical shape and my mental shape. Not all of it stems from Amazon I do have autoimmune diseases which affect my working conditions. I had to shout you out on my channel because I think this video needs to go viral. I think a lot more people that get Amazon package everyday of the week the month because they need to have that one package right away or they just buy everything off Amazon because it's easier for them. I think these people need to know how the employees are treated. Thank you for putting this video out because not only does it help the Amazon employees it helps people like me that was treated badly through Amazon. Have a great day and thanks again this was an awesome video

    70 CHILDREN DIED FOCUS ON THEM…you wanna blame anyone its god

  • Terri Patey on December 16, 2021

    I don't think any employee working anywhere should be told what to do in such a terrifying situation period!!!.

  • Tonya Shores on December 16, 2021

    You right if would be safer to stay there BUT I think they were told to not leave AND KEEP WORKING!!!!! Problem is I have been in a tornado and it came and went before the warning even came out on news so I believe they were told just to get back to work !!! And ti only take shelter when advised

  • Tonya Shores on December 16, 2021

    Wow this news break sounds like the Travis Scott concert please this is serious but people died and no one knew until after??!!!

  • Tonya Shores on December 16, 2021

    I guarantee you each plant has safety managers but never either had them trained or told them just don’t do anything make sure they work And just say everything is okay everybody

    Let's remember our fellow Americans at this time in their need during this Christmas season. Please research the best way to contribute and take your cues from local authorities who have good idea of what is needed. God bless everyone.

    Usually when anyone walks off a job they are terminated or fired. But in this instance that rule cannot apply. NO JOB IS WORTH YOUR LIFE AND IF EMPLOYEES ARE AT JEOPARDY OF LOSING THEIR LIVES THEY HAVE THE RIGHTS TO LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. THEY THE OWNERS AND OR SUPERVISORS ARE NOT GOD. THERE HAS TO BE ACCOUNTABILITY AND LAWSUITS FILED FOR BLACKMAIL

  • James Goodman on December 17, 2021

    THERE SHOULD BE A BOYCOTT AGAINST AMAZON OVER SAFETY ISSUES FOR EMPLOYEES. THOUGHT SWEAT SHOPS WERE AGAINST THE LAW

  • James Goodman on December 17, 2021

    Sounds exactly like SWEAT SHOPS THERE ARE LAWS IN PLACE AGAINST BUSINESSES WHO PRACTICE SWEAT SHOP MENTALITY

  • Theresa on December 17, 2021

    It's geo-engineering, not natural! Please investigate this because supposedly this is the biggest tornado ever recorded in history.

    When I worked the six months in a Home Depot warehouse out in Arizona, we had two fire drills and we all knew what to do and where to go, I don’t get why Amazon and these other warehouses don’t have drills for fire or natural disasters, it’s a shame for sure.

  • Forrest Meadows on December 17, 2021

    Those people don't understand they were probably safer in that building than their homes. It just broke my heart ❤ the loss of life, pets and belongings. I lost everything, literally everything and 9 cats 🐈 in a house fire 10 years ago. I still am not over it. So I can relate.

    I was working in the Hickory Ridge Mall in Memphis when a tornado ripped through we were not allowed to leave. It saved lives of staff and customers because no one was killed at the mall. The damage and event was traumatic.

    It seems to me that Amazon needs to be unionized. Companies that can't make their buildings and their employees safe no matter what need to fined, not that money will replace human life, but a few really big hits in the billions of dollars for damages and deaths need to be brought forward in court. This is the reason unions became a reality to begin with. Companies that don't give a damn about their people who work for them. Common sense is another factor. Amazon workers attention: Petition the Teamsters to get you some advocates to help you and legally be on your side. I am a former Union Steward. If unions were there, a lot of grief could have been spared. Unions would make sure that these facilities would have the proper shelter in these areas that are prone to tornados. Pop up buildings are the worst for imploding, they come down like dominos. Stupid concept for these areas.

    Yeah I'm happy there's a wait it makes it more fun I am not a hurry person just to get my package I feel sorry for the packages I feel sorry for the mailman it's a stress by the rich people just want to go into these stupid rockets what are they going to do up there how would I get food good question are they going to die up there is that they want to die with their riches and money some rude Scrooge rich rudis

    In April of 2011 A tornado hit my state. It killed over 250 Souls!
    If you go to volunteer, bring your own sleeper truck. In 2011 the hotels were filled up and the one close to me were filled by young African American teens church youth groups , not allowing for locals to eve. Hook up to an internet terminal.

    I'm sorry, stay away if you can't help US! I'm still bothered by that. It was just a poorly taught youth group, who used our tragedy to win points and have a party with their other poorly surprised friends.

    Today I thank the Carolinas for sending their line people to handle our power lines. YOU all made a difference!

  • David Castellanos on December 19, 2021

    If Amazon has a Distribution center in a tornado zone. Why not have a underground basement for employees working there to go and take cover? That’s a no brainer for all businesses to look into .Also if any employees died whether it’s by accident or natural disasters on the clock, employers ( Owner)should be held responsible . Considering it’s a tornado zone why not have an underground basement. It’s considered negligence to not have an action plan of any type of evacuation for certain disasters.

  • Andre Valenzuela on December 20, 2021

    I work for a Geodis Logistics facility just less than a mile of the Amazon facility in Edwardsville, Illinois. We have had Fire/Tornado drills; however, never discussed the correct procedure for tornadoes. When they informed us about the "seek shelter" warning; they made us hang out in the break room. We also were not allowed to leave without getting pointed. In addition alot of us employees that left were reprimanded for leaving.

  • Deirdre Pasko on December 20, 2021

    Simple solution to Amazon. Stop using them! I have never ordered anything from them, and now I Never will!

  • Joe Taylor on December 20, 2021

    Idk how true these stories are but I work at an Amazon in California and you can clock out whenever you want you will get a point or hours deducted from personal time so 🤷🏽‍♂️

  • Kat Dog on December 20, 2021

    If you feel you need to leave for your safety, then leave. Never let someone put your life in danger.

  • Nick G on December 22, 2021

    Every video I've seen has brought me to tears I can't imagine, my heart goes out to everyone effected

  • katy46774 on December 23, 2021

    I am down for my stuff to be a day late or two days later. He'll my prime package Saif it was delivered on the 20 and it didn't actually arrive until the 22nd yes I asked but the tracking info "updated early" but it's crazy that they don't value their workers.

  • Adrienne Tardi Gurden on December 23, 2021

    It’s hard to judge. We think we would act a certain way in tragedy. I was downtown (across the street) on 9/11. There are things that people thought that didn’t make sense. Some people had mental breaks. I stayed thinking I was going back to work. Some were told to stay in buildings as debris seemed the bigger risk. We say we would act certain ways and it’s common sense, until we are in a crisis. People do process differently. I like to think they didn’t mean to get people killed
