Dense fog grounded flights

FOGGY weather grounded more than 70 flights at the city's two airports from late yesterday till 1pm today. Airport authorities warned early this morning that visibility at the Pudong International Airport was less than 400 meters.
Shanghai's air quality gets clear gradually today with wind to disperse air pollutants, the Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center said this morning.
The city was "seriously polluted" yesterday when its air pollution level reached a peak around 11pm last night -- the worst of a five-level warning scale.
Afterwards, the pollution index began to drop from 127 to 62 this morning. However, the city's PM10 indicator -- one of the three air pollution measuring standards -- has edged up from 0.069 milligrams per cubic meter at 7am in the morning to 0.084 at noon, back to the "fair" level.
Although winds had been expected yesterday evening to clear up the sky, the effect was not obvious. The urban sky still looked hazy and smoggy.
