Clearer morning in Miri

I should give thanks to the various State government agencies who have worked hard in carrying out the cloud seedling work (if there was one) yesterday, and to our Almighty God for granting the rain last night. Although it was not heavy, but it was a reliever to the residents of Miri who have been suffering due to the thick haze that has blanket Miri City over the past weeks.

Here are a few shots of Miri this morning taken before 7am.

Miri this morning

Don’t be alarm by these photos taken this morning on my way to work. The API reading is still “unknown” because the NREB readings are questionable to many of us in Miri. We do not know how the instrument works and where they located it. But these photos do not lie.

Cloud seedling? Nahh.. according to the authorities, there is no cloud above Miri yesterday. Yes true enough, it was blue sky all the way till the power broke down!

We just need to pray harder, take all precaution, reduce or stop outdoor activities, especially primary schools and drink as much water as possible.
