Good Luck.
Pollution levels Singapore caused forest fires Indonesia are continuing to reach new record highs. The Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) hit 401 Friday, the highest ever recorded Singapore. The previous high was 1997 when the PSI reached 226. A PSI 150 is deemed to be "unhealthy", while anything 300 is defined as "hazardous". Singapore's government said a reading above 400 sustained 24 hours "may be life-threatening to ill and elderly persons". It has advised all its citizens to stay indoors and to wear face masks if they have to go outside. Authorities will distribute one million masks free to the poorest 200,000 households starting Sunday.

The haze has strained relations Singapore and Indonesia over who is responsible the choking smog. Singapore has accused Indonesia recklessness and irresponsibility letting fires get so control. Indonesia responded calling Singapore hypocritical, as many of its companies own plantations where fires are being set to clear forests cultivation. Indonesia's Foreign Ministry would not apologise the haze crisis, but insisted that everything was being done to tackle the problem. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said "all the country's resources" would be mobilised to extinguish the fires. Singapore's Prime Minister warned that the haze could last the end the dry season October.
