Hi guys!

I believed what you just saw this afternoon aound 3pm or from the video was not SNOW although you saw ice stones dropping from the sky! Affected area were Bukit Batok, Jurong and other western parts. Well I wish Singapore will snow one day though... So hot and plus the haze is MADNESS!!! I am guessing Singapore had just started the cloud-seeding to create rain! =)

On 21 June 2013, I read from somewhere that the Singapore government has prepared cloud-seeding equipment to try to induce a downpour/ rain to help remove record levels of smog. 

Smoke from fires on the Sumatra Islands has contributed to thick smog in Singapore and Indonesia.

They also mentioned that rain would provide relief from the fires, which are difficult to fight because peat on the forest floor is burning up to 13 feet below ground, The Jakarta Post reported Friday.

"If there is no rain then the haze could last for weeks, or even months, as we try to generate artificial rain," Indonesian Forestry Ministry General Secretary Hadi said.

Well the cloud-seeding may be good in one way but also caused disaster...

Picture found in online:

I am hoping no one got injured over this...
Take care guys!
Don't get hit by ice stones!!! =p



  1. NEA has already announced that the hailstones were not a result of cloud seeding you might want to update your post!
