While on the road again last Monday for a work in Ozamiz City, haze has blanketed most of the provinces across Mindanao. Maybe the visibility is just about seven to eight kilometers.  Going to Ozamiz, we took the Davao-Cotabato Highway then Narciso Ramos Highway to Labangan-Molave route.

In our  12-hour drive, haze has blanketed the plains of North Cotabato, the mountain ranges across the Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur and the scenic view of the Illana Bay from the coastal road of Lanao del Norte and some parts of Zamboanga del Sur.

Last Friday, October 23, we passed the same route going back to Davao City…the pictures remain the same.

The haze is believed to be caused by forest fires in Kalimantan and Sumatra, Indonesia and has been affecting Mindanao for nearly two weeks already.
