"Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak bersetuju mengisytiharkan status

darurat di Muar dan Ledang berkuat kuasa serta merta selepas bacaan IPU melebihi

750," kata Palanivel.

Jabatan Alam Sekitar (JAS) melaporkan bacaan IPU di Muar setakat 7 pagi ini

ialah 746.

Bagaimanapun setakat 11 pagi ini, bacaan IPU di Muar mencatatkan sedikit

penurunan kepada 690 tetapi masih pada tahap bahaya.

Berdasarkan indeks kualiti udara, bacaan antara 0 dan 50 dikategorikan baik,

51 hingga 100 (sederhana), 101 ke 200 (tidak sihat), 201 hingga 300 (sangat

tidak sihat) dan 300 ke atas sebagai berbahaya.

Pada 2005, Pelabuhan Klang dan Kuala Selangor diletakkan di bawah status

darurat jerebu apabila bacaan IPU di kedua-dua kawasan itu melebihi 500, tahap

yang dikategorikan sebagai berbahaya kepada kesihatan.
