Haze conditions deteriorate, air quality could enter mid section of Very Unhealthy range: NEA

SINGAPORE: Hazy conditions in Singapore further deteriorated over Wednesday night, said the National Environment Agency (NEA) on Thursday (Sep 24). This was due to denser haze from Sumatra being blown in by the prevailing southerly winds.

As of 8am on Thursday, the 3-hour PSI was 183, while the 24-hour PSI was 152-186, in the Unhealthy range. The NEA added that these conditions are expected to persist for the rest of the day, and that there could be further deterioration in the air quality on Thursday, as the prevailing winds are forecast to blow from the south-southeast or south-southwest.

The 24-hr PSI for the next 12 hours is expected to be in the high end of the Unhealthy range and the low end of the Very Unhealthy range, and may enter the mid-section of the Very Unhealthy range if denser haze from Sumatra continues to be blown in, said the NEA.

Given the air quality forecast for the next 24 hours, healthy people should reduce prolonged or strenuous outdoor physical exertion, the NEA advised. The elderly, pregnant women and children should minimise outdoor activity, while those with chronic lung or heart disease should avoid it altogether.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
