Haze Alert: Penang

It looks like we're next. After hearing about KL city folks suffering from last week's haze, it seems that the strong winds from last night's rain shower has brought the smoke to the island.

From my last check, visibility levels in Penang have dropped to less than 500 metres.

You may obtain visibility level information from this useful website.

Here are some snapshots which I took this morning at approximately 1100 hours:
