Delhi Flood News Live Updates: The Yamuna floods, and water treatment facilities close

Delhi Flood News Live Updates for you. At 8 a.m. today, the Yamuna’s water level was 208.48 meters, according to the Central Water Commission. 10 schools in Delhi’s low-lying Civil Lines zone and 7 in Shahadra would be shuttered today as a result of the potential for flooding, according to MCD. Due to severe rains, the discharge of water from the Hathnikund Barrage, and rising river levels, some areas of the city are experiencing flooding and water logging.

The Yamuna water level rose quickly in Delhi over the past few days. It rose quickly from 203.14 meters at 11 a.m. on Sunday to 205.4 at 5 p.m. on Monday, breaking through the 205.33-meter danger mark 18 hours sooner than anticipated. Section 144 CrPC has also been implemented by the Delhi police as a preventative measure in the city’s flood-prone districts.

In accordance with the Delhi government’s evacuation plan, a total of 16,564 residents of low-lying regions have been relocated to safer locations, and 14,534 others are currently living in tents or other makeshift shelters throughout the city. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal sent a letter to the Central Water Commission yesterday urging it to act quickly to avert the impending disaster.
