Singapore may have "occasional slight haze" for the next few days, especially in the mornings, said the National Environment Agency (NEA) on yesterday night (Mar 2).

According to an NEA advisory, thick haze has been blanketing parts of the Riau province in Indonesia, reports The Straits Times.

The NEA said 70 hotspots were detected in Sumatra, but wind blowing from the north-east will keep the haze away from Singapore.

However, Singapore may still experience occasional slight haze due to accumulation of particulate matter under stable atmospheric conditions.

In Malaysia's Port Klang, air pollutant index readings on Sunday morning reached an unhealthy level of 121.

The three-hour PSI or pollutant standards index, a measure of air quality, in Singapore was 30 as at 9pm yesterday night.

A PSI of 0 to 50 remains in the "good" range, while that between 51 and 100 is "moderate".

Bloody idiots treat neighbors idiots like shit! Name frigging ship after terrorist...choking us too death!
When comes to mother nature i've nothing much to say. But i am impressed with the success of the NewWater and the desalination process. As for haze, somehow it has become a familiar sight in this region. The change in prevailing wind condition is what it takes if there is no rain at all. The use of masks shall be used when necessary.

Stomper Artz feels that people in PES C1L2 are treated unfairly and hopes that this was taken into consideration in the new IPPT format..
