People might want to investigate the current safety of going to the Leagues club in Townsville. A 100 metre exclusion zone has been announced around the Suncorp building in Sturt Street.

ABC NQ social media story below.

"A 100 meter exclusion zone is now in place around the Suncorp Building.

It was evacuated just after 12:30 following reports it may be structurally unsound.

Police and Firemen are on scene assessing the building."

For Townsville, that's a big building.

a wall has moved apparently. Wonder if the recent wet or a busted pipe has caused it?
