~ Haze Haze Go Away! ~

We just recovered from an eye infection and the haze is causing irritation to our eyes. Due to the Sumatra fires, with an increased in the number of hot spots, the haze condition has worsen.

The Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) has hit over 100 earlier this evening, reaching the unhealthy range.

PSI ValuePSI Descriptor
0 - 50Good
51 - 100Moderate
101 - 200Unhealthy
201 - 300Very unhealthy
Above 300Hazardous

NEA has advised the public to reduce vigorous outdoor activities, and people who feel unwell should consult their doctors. Those without underlying conditions may also experience eye irritation, sneezing and coughing.

I was working in Tuas 2 days ago and the haze condition in the West is definitely worse than in the North and East area. I can even smell the burning scent within the office.

Haze condition is expected to continue for a few more days and here's a helpful Haze Health Guide link.

Hopefully we will get to smell the fresh air and see the clear blue sky again soon!
