Sydney Opal Tower: Thousands evacuated after 'crack'

As many as 3,000 people have been evacuated after residents of a newly completed tower block in Australia reported hearing "cracking noises".

Police confirmed they had found a crack in the 33-storey Opal Tower, in Sydney Olympic Park, following reports of the noise on the 10th floor.

Engineers said the high-rise tower has moved up to 2mm, local media reported.

A 1km (0.6 mile) evacuation zone, which also affected other buildings, was put in place amid safety fears.

An email to residents of a nearby apartment block said the evacuation had been ordered because "there is a potential for the tower to collapse", according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Sydney tower block evacuated as residents hear 36-storey building 'crack'

Thousands of residents have been moved out on Christmas Eve after fears were raised that the building could collapse.

A 36-storey building in Sydney with more than 3,000 people has been evacuated after reports of cracking noises coming from the high-rise.

The residents living in or near the Opal Tower complex in the city's Olympic Park were moved out on Christmas Eve.

Firefighters and engineers are expected to enter the complex later on Monday to investigate the reported cracks on the 10th floor and their cause - including whether the building is in danger of collapse.

Meriton, the operator of the neighboring building, said in an email sent out to residents that there was "potential for the tower to collapse".
