SINGAPORE: Hazy skies at various parts of Singapore have been reported.

The three-hour Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) reading has been rising and stood at 55 at 1pm.
A PSI reading between 51 and 100 is in the "moderate" range, while a reading above 100 is classified as “unhealthy”.
The PSI reading in Singapore hit a record high of 401 on 21 June this year as a result of smog from forest fires in Indonesia.
However, the National Environment Agency’s website indicated a decrease in the number of hotspots in Indonesia’s Sumatra island, from 199 to 82 on Monday. - CNA/xq
