Events cancelled because of haze
These participants turned up for the Breast Cancer Foundation's Pink Ribbon Walk 2015 at Marina Bay yesterday, although the air quality was in the unhealthy range. A number of events were affected by the haze.
The Fina Swimming World Cup finals at the OCBC Aquatic Centre were cancelled, as was Fox The Walking Dead Mission Survive.
The 24-hour Pollutant Standard Index (PSI) was above 100 throughout the day. The three-hour PSI crossed 200 at 5pm and peaked at 242 an hour later.
The hazy conditions are expected to continue today, though there may be a slight improvement, said the National Environment Agency.
