SINGAPORE: The number of hotspots detected on Indonesia's Sumatra island soared to 177 on Thursday (Sep 4), up from 80 the day before, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said in an advisory posted on its website. Most of these hotspots were in southern Sumatra.
NEA said there was slight haziness in the morning in Singapore due to accumulation of dust particles in the air under light wind conditions. As of 6pm, the 24-hour PSI is 66-74, in the Moderate range.
NEA said the slight haziness would likely continue on Friday, with light winds from the south forecast. Air quality is expected to be in the Moderate range. However, thundery showers are forecast for the late morning and early afternoon. - CNA/ly
