Number of hotspots in Sumatra drops further: NEA [News]
By Channel NewsAsia, 13 Feb 2014
The number of hotspots detected in Sumatra on Thursday dropped to 107 from 283 on Wednesday. There were 458 hotspots on Tuesday.
In an update, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said the drop in the number was due to increased cloud cover.
NEA said localised smoke plumes and haze were still visible in Riau province where most of the hotspots were detected.
For the rest of this week, NEA said the likelihood of transboundary haze affecting Singapore remains low, as the prevailing northeasterly winds will keep the haze away from Singapore.
