I spotted some open burning at non habited sites along the Elite highway to Nilai...not good!
What enforcement? What will?...None that I can imagine!
Hmmm..what I saw was piled up jungle or cleared timbers and set on fire..thats what I noticed while doing 100kmh along the route..
The air quality in KK is bearable
Following is the Regional Haze Map by NEA Singapore. With the haze gone, I can stop posting the latest update.
Hopefully, the hot spots reduce further but we need to monitor closely since the dry season in Sumatra last till September.
The reasons API hit record high last week in Muar and Port Klang were because of open burning in these parts... Indonesia only gave us 300-400, the rest are from local open burning... check out YB Elizabeth Wong's blog and you can see the locations where local open burning took place...
Is the haze coming back? Today's API for Petaling Jaya has climbed up to 54. It was in the healthy 30s for the last few days.

Be prepared for haze to return said National Environmental Agency (NEA) of Singapore.
NEA said there has been a sharp increase in number of hotspots in Sumatra in the last two days. This morning it was reported 152 hotspots and the latest number reach 261, with 173 of them in Riau.
According to the report, the air quality in a few Malaysian states has worsened, and some areas and Selangor and Malacca have started recording unhealthy levels of air quality intermittently from as early as 8am this morning.
