PHUKET: A lack of wind has left Phuket blanketed in haze today (Mar 1), with officials now cautioning people to take precautions against the pollution.

 

The Regional Environment Office 15 (REO 15), based in Phuket, yesterday issued an advisory for people to monitor their ease of breathing following a dust haze from Bangladesh and Myanmar settling over the island.

 

However, despite readings from the Pollution Control Department confirming that the air quality today is even worse than yesterday, the REO 15 office has yet to issue any advisory today.

I live on an island 100km north of Phuket .

No pollution here . A lot of wind ... No burning here at all , as they only have rubber and palm oil plantations , no rice paddies or sugar cane to burn ...

They will always find something to burn during the dry season, even if it's only the roadside garbage!

Nothing to do with local burning.
