Yamuna records highest-ever water level at 208.4m; know submerging areas


Yamuna Water Level: The Yamuna in Delhi has reached its highest level of 208.46 meters today, submerging low-lying areas. The Central Water Commission has described it as an ‘extreme situation’. The water flow in Yamuna is expected to increase around 8-10 am today.

At present the water level is three meters above the danger mark. The water level in Yamuna was 208.46 meters at 7 am today. On the other hand, water is being released into the Yamuna river by the Hathinikund barrage in Haryana. Monastery Market, Yamuna Bazar, Garhi Mandu, Geeta Ghat, Vishwakarma Colony, Khadda Colony, areas around Neeli Chhatri Temple near old railway bridge, Neem Karoli Gaushala and ring road from Wazirabad to Majnu Ka Tila after Yamuna water level rises. A part has been submerged in the flood.

Traffic was affected on Mahatma Gandhi Marg between IP Flyover and Chandgi Ram Akhara, Mahatma Gandhi Marg between Kalighat Temple and Delhi Secretariat and Outer Ring Road between Wazirabad Bridge and Chandgi Ram Akhara due to water-logging in low-lying areas.

Geeta colony crematorium closed

The Geeta Colony crematorium, located near the Yamuna river, has also been closed due to floods. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has urged citizens to use the cremation facilities at Karkardooma and Ghazipur cremation grounds.

The Yamuna in Delhi rose to 208.08 meters on Wednesday. Earlier, the water level of Yamuna reached 207.49 meters 45 years ago. Let us tell you that due to incessant rains and heavy rains in Delhi and surrounding areas over the weekend, a flood-like situation has arisen.

There are two major barrages on the Yamuna. First- Dakpathar in Uttarakhand and Hathnikund in Haryana. There are no dams on Yamuna river and hence the water level of Yamuna rises during monsoon. It is being told that the flow of water from Haryana barrage is expected to reduce from 2 pm today, but the India Meteorological Department has predicted heavy to very heavy rains to continue in Uttarakhand for the next two days, threatening the flood. Will increase.

Over 16,000 evacuated

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urged residents of low-lying areas to vacate after an emergency meeting on Wednesday. So far, more than 16,500 people living in low-lying areas have been shifted to safer places. 12 teams of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) are on the ground for relief and rescue work.
