Smog eases in and around Bangkok

The atmosphere in Bangkok and its suburbs has been declared safe today, with PM2.5 dust particles falling below 50 microns according to the Pollution Control Department. The department said that air quality will improve further tomorrow due, in part, to the tireless efforts of many organisations.

 

Smog in several northern provinces has also eased today, with excessive levels of PM2.5 dust measured only in Mae Moh district of Lampang, Muang district of Lamphun, Tambon Nachak in Muang district of Phrae province, Tambon Phra Baat in Muang district of Lampang province, Tambon Wiang in Muang district of Nan province and Tambon Ban Dong in Mae Moh district of Lampang province.

 

In the northern province of Chiang Mai, even though the smog has reduced considerably today, many school children were seen wearing face masks as a precaution. Officials continue to spray water into the air from high-rise buildings.

Still, an extremely windy storm will be handy! to blow all that rice burn smoke back over to ChM's neighbours

Well, it has certainly not eased in Khon Khon. Sometimes, it's hard to avoid the notion that, as far as the rest of Thailand is concerned, the Northeast simply doesn't exist or, if it does, it's in another country.

Yes, well. The aqicn.org (RTAQ) site has PM2.5 being either moderate or unhealthy for sensitive groups for the past 48 hours. AirVisual has it Good (< 50 AQI) only in Samut Prakan. Only in Rayong do I see some breathable (without a mask) "Good" air.

SMOG eases in. Does that mean it did it slowly and quietly with the hope that nobody would notice?

Or did it come down the river with muffled oars, like an old time pirate. Was it Dan Tempest? Need to google the name to be honest. 😆
