Westfield Eastgardens collapsed, I wasn't there

I haven't been to Westfield Eastgardens for quite a while. It is one of my window shopping locations just not very close to me. Today's news, the carpark at Westfield Eastgardens collapsed.

Superintendent Rick Parkes of Fire and Rescue NSW says part of the car park at Westfield Eastgardens at Pagewood, collapsed about 7am (AEST) on Tuesday, well before the centre's usual 9am open.

A second-level steel beam that supported the car park roof had "weakened and broken", he said.

People - among them former NSW Premier Kristina Keneally - were evacuated before the whole centre was closed off after a survey revealed the collapse might have caused structural damage, he said.

Westfield Eastgardens was closed for today. No words yet about if it would be open tomorrow or not.

And to Rev. Dr. Wu Yi. Don't worry, I wasn't there.

Mall opening is 10:00?
It had better be fixed by the time I get back from Thailand!
Closure of all surrounding streets, many of which are major roads was an over-kill as usual!!
