Haze effects focusing distance
Vessels line the coast in an anchorage area shrouded by haze in Singapore on September 18, 2014.
Easterly winds have been moving vast clouds of smoke from forest fires burning in Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of Borneo, toward Singapore through the South China Sea. NOAA satellite data indicates this haze will continue for the next few days.

For Singapore, this haze is approaching an unhealthy level according to the National Environment Agency (NEA).
 
Singapore’s Minister for the Environment and Water Resources, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, has written to the Indonesia Minister of Environment Balthasar Kambuaya, to express Singapore’s deep concern over the transboundary haze from Indonesia that has affected his country. He also reiterated Singapore’s offer of assistance to the Indonesians to help deal with the fires, according to the NEA website.
