Huge pollution levels in Shanghai these days. On the Air Quality Index it surpassed 500 today, and it reads "beyond index". Which means that when they've set up this AQI they never thought it would go higher than 500...

Do you mean the very low ones? Because actually I think that is mist, seeing how it hangs only above the water. Above that however, those faint 'strokes' of misty lines is probably smog.

While it makes for cool pictures, i'm sad seeing this. Shanghai is my favorite city, but this make me a bit angry.

All construction in Shanghai including Shanghai Tower is halted today because of the extremely high amount of smog.

Also all schools are closed and there is only 30 meter sight at most.

Many cities in Asia are in smog at the early morning, not only Shanghai.

The area at night is mindblowing. Looks like a utopic city. Is it always that colourful?
