Residents at Mill Vale in Newburn who were allowed to return to their flats on Wednesday have been evacuated once more.
One resident told Sky News he was instructed by a police officer to 'get out now' because the building is expected to collapse.
Newcastle City Council denies that is the case, despite the officer's comments.
But the safety cordon around the flats has been pushed back and mesh fencing is being erected.
The council said the evacuation was a precautionary measure.
A spokesman said: "Two blocks of flats on Hareside Walk and Hareside Close close to Spencer Court, Newburn, were evacuated this morning.
"The decision by Your Homes Newcastle was taken in the interests of residents' safety.
"Residents of approximately 15 properties were taken to Newburn Leisure Centre, which has been acting as a rest centre this week.
"Longer-term accommodation for residents will be arranged by YHN.
"All decisions have been made with the safety of the residents as the primary concern."
