The levels of particulate matter from Indonesia's forest fires in the southern provinces of Songkhla, Satun, Yala and Pattani have soared above safety levels, environmental authorities said on Wednesday.
Residents in all areas were advised to continually monitor the haze situation and wear face masks outside the home at all times.
The particulate matter (PM10) reading in the four provinces was measured on a rolling 24-hour average until 6pm, the Pollution Control Department said.
