Yamuna river may again cross the danger mark in Delhi this evening

New Delhi, July 23: The water level of the Yamuna River is increasing rapidly in the national capital, Delhi. The water level of the Yamuna River was recorded at 205.81 meters at Old Loha Bridge at 7 a.m. today. If it reaches 206.7 meters, there may be flooding again in Yamuna Khadar.
The water level of the Yamuna river continues to rise due to the release of more than two lakh cusecs of water from Hathinikund barrage in Yamunanagar, Haryana. This has increased the concern of the Delhi government. Delhi Revenue Minister Atishi said that according to the latest update from the Central Water Commission, the Yamuna river may cross the danger mark by this evening. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the entire government are ready to deal with the possible risks and challenges arising in such a situation.
He said massive preparations have been made in the relief camps for the convenience of the flood-affected people. All necessary arrangements have been made to provide dignified accommodation and support to the people. He has also appealed to the people for cooperation. It is notable that the Yamuna River in Delhi has crossed the danger mark in the past as well.
Meanwhile, apart from neighbouring Haryana, rivers are in spate due to heavy rains in Punjab. The water level of the Hindon and Yamuna rivers is rising rapidly due to the release of 2.23 lakh cusecs of water from Hathinikund Barrage on Saturday. A cloudburst occurred at five places in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jammu-Kashmir, and Ladakh. Due to this, roads were destroyed in many places. Many highways are blocked due to debris.
