STOMPer Ming can hardly see Marina Bay Sands and other buildings in the financial district today (Sep 11), and wonders if the PSI is in the unhealthy range.
Said the STOMPer:
"I took this photo from my apartment in Tanjong Rhu.
"Usually I have a clear view of Marina Bay Sands and the downtown financial centre.
"Today you can barely make out the buildings.
"No update on the PSI readings from the NEA.
"Can the PSI still be below 100? From the looks of it it could be above 100 and in the 'unhealthy' range in some areas."
According to the National Environment Agency (NEA) the haze is likely due to a change in wind patterns. But the south-eastern winds had kept smoke away from Singapore despite an increase in hot spot activities in Sumatra.
The agency also said that the Republic could experience brief periods of slightly hazy conditions should fires in the region persist and if the winds blow from the south.
As of 4pm Sunday (Sept 11), the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) crossed into the moderate range, hitting 55. On June 2, the PSI reading was 56.
