JEREBU-IPU (PETANG) 2 KUALA LUMPUR

Sementara itu Menteri Sumber Asli dan Alam Sekitar Datuk Seri G Palanivel

berkata beliau dijadual ke Jakarta pada Rabu untuk mengadakan perbincangan

dengan rakan sejawatannya di Indonesia Prof Dr Balthasar Kambuayato mengenai isu

jerebu.

Pertemuan itu, katanya dijangka membincangkan mengenai penguatkuasaan

undang-undang yang lebih ketat dan langkah-langkah proaktif mengenai perkara itu

seperti pembenihan awan.

Sementara itu JAS menerusi kenyataan hari ini berkata peningkatan IPU pada

tahap tidak sihat dan berbahaya masih dipengaruhi pencemaran jerebu merentasi

sempadan berikutan musim Monsun Barat Daya yang sedang dialami negara dan

dijangka berterusan sehingga September ini.

"Peta jerebu serantau dikeluarkan Pusat Meteorologi Khas Asean (ASMC) pada

21 Jun (semalam) menunjukkan asap jerebu yang bertambah tebal dari kawasan

kebakaran di Wilayah Riau, Sumatera Tengah, Indonesia dan tiupan angin dari arah

barat daya membawa asap jerebu ke kawasan tengah dan selatan pantai barat

Semenanjung Malaysia," katanya.

Jabatan itu berkata ASMC juga melaporkan titik panas di Sumatera semalam

telah berkurangan kepada 21 berbanding 64 pada Khamis lepas dan 173 pada Rabu

lepas.

Selangor, Melaka dan Johor masih berkuatkuasa kecuali beberapa aktiviti seperti

pembakaran mayat dan pembakaran bagi tujuan keagamaan.

Sementara itu di SHAH ALAM, Pengarah Jabatan Alam Sekitar (JAS) Selangor

Siti Zaleha Ibrahim berkata kualiti udara di kebanyakan tempat di negeri itu

mengalami kemerosotan hari ini, namun jabatan itu menjangka kualiti udara akan

bertambah baik beberapa hari lagi.

terutama di Pelabuhan Klang yang berdekatan dengan Sumatera. JAS akan mengambil

tindakan terhadap mana-mana pihak yang melanggar peraturan larangan pembakaran

terbuka," katanya ketika dihubungi Bernama.

Kualiti udara di dua kawasan di Selangor petang ini berada pada tahap tidak

sihat iaitu Pelabuhan Klang dengan bacaan 145 dan Banting 107.
