Eye witnesses have reported the roof of the former Fisons factory is “nearly blowing off” in high winds.
Neighbours to the site in Paper Mill Lane in Bramford, near Ipswich, have contacted police and moved their vehicles out of the way.
Today, gusts of up to 60mph were forecast with a "persistent and sustained" spell of high winds predicted to continue until 4pm.
One neighbour to the derelict fertiliser factory site said: "I'm genuinely concerned for vehicles driving past and houses here."
A spokesman for Suffolk police confirmed they had been contacted about concerns over the roof, but they had not attended.
