PSI Hit 152 As Haze Worsens in Singapore
Our World Tuesday
Incredible! Haze hit unhealthy level in Singapore. A high PSI reading of 152 was issued at 9 pm. A PSI reading of 51-100 is "moderate" and 101-200 "unhealthy" range.
Children, the elderly and those with heart or lung diseases are advised to reduce prolonged or heavy outdoor activities in view of the haze. I should also limit prolonged or heavy outdoor activities. -_-
With some 138 hotspots detected over Sumatra, the hazy conditions are expected to persist for the next few days. I am worried as a couple of my students are suffering from asthma.
This haze problem is causing widespread health problems and would probably cost the regional economy billions of dollars as a result of business and air transport disruptions. -_-
