SINGAPORE – As hazy skies returned to Singapore over the weekend, many people took to Facebook and Instagram to share photos of the situation across the island.
Air quality took a sharp turn for the worse on Saturday (Sept 14), with the PSI reading entering the unhealthy level for the first time since 2016, after hovering in the moderate range.
The National Environment Agency said the hazy conditions were due to smoke haze from Sumatra being blown in by the prevailing winds.
