Malaysia's Latest Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) Readings

|  0 comments

If you are looking for the latest status on Pollutant Standards Index (PSI), Air Pollutant Index (API) or Air Quality Index (AQI), you've come to the right place. PSI, API and AQI refer to the same thing: a number that is used to communicate how polluted the air is. The bigger the number the more polluted the air is.

Haze in Malaysia and Singapore is getting worse. So much so that the Prime Minister of Malaysia has declared a state of emergency in two districts in the state of Johor, Malaysia.

Below are real-time PSI readings in your location and nearby areas.
