Yamuna Water Level

New Delhi: Delhi officials on Sunday made announcements to vacate low-lying areas as Yamuna’s water level crossed the danger mark once again. According to officials, at 4 pm, the water level was recorded at 206.31 meters. 

Earlier, due to heavy rain in Himachal Pradesh and Uttrakhand, the water level in Yamuna reached its all-time high resulting in heavy flooding in several parts of the national capital. 

The level of water was being turned down for the last 4 days but it has started going -up after the mountains continuously received downpours. 

Delhi’s Revenue Minister, Atishi, in the morning, issued a warning that the water level in the Yamuna River may surpass the danger mark by Sunday evening, according to the latest update from the Central Water Commission. She further emphasized that certain parts of the Yamuna Khadar region may face floods if the water level rises to 206.7. 

Ongoing heavy rainfall predictions

The situation remains critical as the India Meteorological Department forecasts heavy to very heavy rainfall in parts of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand until July 25. These predictions indicate the continuation of heavy rainfall in the upper reaches of the Yamuna, potentially exacerbating the flood situation in Delhi.

The Delhi government and concerned authorities are leaving no stone unturned to tackle the impending flood threat and ensure the safety and well-being of its citizens. Vigilance and cooperation from the public are vital during this challenging time, as the city prepares to face the impact of the rising Yamuna water level and the continuous rainfall in the region.
