Danger Area

Sawadee Khrap

Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Lampang and Mae Hong Son provinces are really in trouble, smoke levels have reached the Haze Disaster point but officials are not ready to declare a full disaster zone. Smoke levels have reached the 300 microgram/cubic meter in Chiang Mai and the surrounding area – officials have been handing out over 130,000 masks so far and more to come – we got ours yesterday – Thai Airway has cancelled flights and delays are also occurring between Bangkok and Chiang Rai airports –

Burning violators will be fined 2,000 Baht if caught starting fires in the North.

Check here for the latest from The Bangkok Post – you can also check the links for “Chiang Mai Mail” and “CityLife Magazine, Chiang Mai” that are listed in the side-bar column.

We are staying inside – not much fun though – and it is really hampering our getting models for the new web-site, can’t take any pictures in this weather and we don’t have the studio set up yet.
