Yamuna River poses flood risk as water level hits 206.01meters  in Delhi, surpassing danger mark.

Amid the ongoing flood situation in various parts of Delhi, the Yamuna River remains above the danger mark, with a recorded water level of 206.01 meters at 11 pm on Monday (July 17). This marked a slight increase from the earlier gradual decrease. The traffic in the city is still affected due to waterlogging in several areas. The Central Water Commission reported the water level at 205.48 meters on Monday morning, down from 206.02 meters on Sunday. Delhi Minister Atishi advised flood-affected residents in relief camps not to return home yet due to a “slight rise” in the Yamuna River’s water level after rains in Haryana. Authorities are actively pumping out water from flooded roads, although some areas still require the removal of silt and mud.
