Thick Haze


During normal times, one is greeted with this scenery of Iligan Bay upon entering Iligan City, as shown in this 2012 file photo, wherein you can see Mt. Agad-agad on the left, a hint of downtown Iligan on the right side of the horizon, and even the tall mountains of Lanao del Sur on the right side. But with the thick haze over most of Mindanao the past two days reportedly due to the forest fires in Indonesia, visibility is reduced drastically, as shown in the lower photo taken noon Monday (19 Oct 2015).
