Chiang Mai – Rain gives Residents a Break from the Smog

Via: City News – Chiang Mai


After days of thick, gray haze (not only blotting out the mountains and the sun, but also causing flights to delay their landing into the Chiang Mai airport), things seem to be looking up as a result of considerable rainfall and hail in Chiang Mai and surrounding northern cities this past weekend.

Officials in Chiang Mai have commented on the hazardous haze as an issue that needs to be taken care of without any decisive moves made toward improvement.

However, it looks as though Mother Nature, at least for now, is providing some solace as overall quality of the air at downtown Chiang Mai is in the ‘moderate’ range at PM10 59 right now.




The World Health Orgazation, US, EU, maintain PM10 rating of +50 is ‘DANGEROUS’!

Until Thailand recognizes the fallacy of their grading system, they will continue to put their citizens at grave risk.
