Hundreds of schools shut as forestfire haze blankets Southeast Asia

first_imgJambi (Indonesia): Huge fires are raging across vast swathes of Indonesia’s rainforests — some of the world’s biggest — with toxic smog shutting hundreds of schools in Southeast Asia, officials said Tuesday. Massive jungle areas in Sumatra and Borneo islands are ablaze as thousands of personnel battle to quell the fires, frequently started to clear land for crop plantations. Burning forests to make way for farming is also thought to be behind the enormous fires currently ripping through the Amazon in South America, and experts believe they could have a serious impact on the global climate.

Air quality has dropped to “unhealthy” levels in and around Kuala Lumpur, according to the government’s air pollutant index, and the skyline has been shrouded in thick smog. The smell of burning foliage filled the air, and residents were suffering respiratory problems and complained of itchy and sore eyes.

Haze also hung over Singapore, while residents in parts of southern Thailand were advised to wear face masks this week. Around 400 schools were closed Tuesday in nine districts of Malaysia’s Sarawak state on Borneo, with more than 150,000 students affected, according to the local education department. In neighbouring Indonesia’s Jambi province, on Sumatra, some kindergartens will be closed until Friday, while elementary and junior high schools are also temporarily shut, according to local authorities, who did not give exact numbers. Jambi mayor Syarif Fasha urged residents to wear face masks while Malaysia’s national disaster management agency said it has secured half a million masks, which will be sent to the Sarawak state disaster committee. “This is really scary,” said Jambi resident Atiah, who goes by one name like many Indonesians. “I’m coughing and keep having trouble breathing — I don’t know what this is going to mean for my respiratory health.”last_img read more
