She is married and has children. During the haze, she had to drive to her school in a very careful manner as the visibility was very limited, up to 5 metres only. Few accidents happened during the haze due to lack of visibility for the drivers and because of that, she tends to stay at home and limits her movement after the sun sets.One thing she remembers about the haze is the sudden drop of attendance among her students. She said almost half of the students were sick and on medical condition. Haze affects the school daily operation and eventually the school has to close when the Air Pollution Index (API) reaches the dangerous level. Muar has been put under state of emergency. She quotes 'It feels like living in a smoke room'.Locations:Asia-Malaysia-Muar District-Southeast AsiaDate:4 Jun, 2014Credit:© Rahman Roslan / GreenpeaceMaximum size:2304px X 1536pxRestrictions:Please do not use without GPSEA's approval.Keywords:Air pollution-Children-Climate (campaign title)-Forest fires-Health-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Mothers-People-VictimsShoot:Forest Fires & Haze - Human Impacts in MalaysiaPeople in Muar, Malaysia, talk about their experience with the extreme haze and air pollution caused by forest fires, occurred last year.
