Pattaya's mayor has mobilized his teams in the city as haze rivalling that being experienced in Bangkok has hit the Thai seaside resort.

 

Pictures on the 77kaoded site showed low visibility as the hazardous 50 microgram 2.5 PM level was exceeded. 

 

They said the problems in Pattaya were particularly bad in the mornings and evenings. But at least the sea breezes helped a little.

Mayor Sontaya Khunpluem ordered all his officials to be on full alert. 

 

He advised that anyone going out whether residents or tourists should wear masks for protection from the harmful particles in the air.

All the Holiday snaps should look really good.

Tanned bodies, and a face like a monkey

Alert to the fact they are being lead by inefficiency and incompetence.

Just blow it somewhere else.... not a solution just a slight reprieve.

The more the media talks about this, the more hope something will be done by those at the top, meaning those brown envelopes might have to stop....lol, albeit the top brass will be blaming neighboring countries, although they have banged that one to death.

 

On a more serious note, my wife told me today that the school was making an announcement today and they were talking about PM2.5 telling kids to stay away from smoke, especially when it is in the air everywhere.

I watch this every morning since end of last week. Living right on the beach I even cannot see Kho Larn.

Today I urged my son to wear a mask at school but I'm afraid his friends will laugh at him.

Nice of the mayor to catch up, it's been like this for frigging weeks, levels in excess of 155 AQI, they will do as they always do, Sweet Fanny Adams.
