STATE OF EMERGENCY
by TV Smith
11/08/05 5pm


Not yet apparently. International news agencies are declaring a state of emergency on behalf of the Malaysian Government. At blogtime, there is no declaration from any official government entity. The National Security Department's web is silent on the matter. The official API chart has several areas exceeding the promised '500 benchmark'. Bernama makes no mention of it too, hours after the wire reports.

Update: State of Emergency declared in Kuala Selangor & Port Klang.

from Channelnews Asia

I am inundated with calls from people asking me what they are supposed to do since we are already in a state of emergency as widely believed and circulated.

What do you do and what to expect?

Don't panic! The haze will not immediately become (more) lethal upon declaration.

Schools, government offices and other non-essential services are expected to close.

Factories & construction projects with gaseous emissions may be ordered to stop work.

Some form of curbing or restriction of private transportation to further reduce pollution.

There will be no curfews but you would definitely be advised to stay indoors.

Do not send or forward misleading SMSs to aggravate the existing confusion.
