Hazehaze, please go away!

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person that complains about haze in the state since Tuesday morning. I remembered when I woke up yesterday, it's was as if the skies are still pre-dawn and going to rain anytime soon. As the day goes, the haze became thicker and thicker.

Several areas in Penang experienced moderate haze conditions Tuesday with visibility restricted to within four to six kilometres.

Based on information from the Department of Environment's official website, the records taken until 11am showed that the Air Pollution Index (API) in Seberang Jaya here was 84.

The air quality in two other areas in Perai and Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) was also at moderate levels of 70 and 71 API, respectively.

The API was taken through a 24-hour reading recorded since yesterday and the cause of the haze was due to the prevailing dry weather over the past few days.

Hopefully we will have clear skies soon :)
