Haze in Penang

Photo taken at 2:35pm today.

After many days of enjoying clear skies and clean air, the haze is finally here. There were strong winds and some rain early this morning. When I spoke to Wuan around 11am just now, it was already getting hazy. Visibility was still good. I could still see the hills in the distance which is about 10km or more from here.

At around 2.30pm, as Minishorts and I were chatting, the air was beginning to smell foul. I looked out and visibility has been reduced to 5km or less. As I am typing this visibility is getting poorer and poorer. There is a gentle breeze but it smells.

  1. yeah, the sky is clearer today too.

    but penang’s haze isn’t as bad as kl. yesterday was especially bad. today the sun is out & we can see blue sky…!!!

  2. so sorry for the condition in penang, kl seems much clearer now and we’re greatly thankful… i pray you’ll get through the haze… god bless…

  3. ya i notice the haze too. too bad. well, it’s expected though so no shock. just hope it won’t be as bad ask in kl/klang.

  4. Looks like haze is shifting to penang!! But shouldn’t be as bad as in kl/selangor… Too bad the wind is shifting the haze over there, but I’m grateful the situation here in kl/selangor looks more promising than the previous days. It’s really disappointing to wake up everyday just to find the condition has worsen, as if it wasn’t bad enough already. =(
