Rain lashes various parts of Delhi

Rain pours down in various areas of Delhi


While some areas of Delhi are still dealing with a situation similar to a flood because of the swollen Yamuna, rain fell in other areas of the capital on Sunday night. Images taken in Pandit Pant Marg depict people watching a downpour.

Earlier, the Yamuna River in Delhi crossed the danger mark once again following a surge in discharge from the Hathnikund Barrage into the river, increasing the chances of another spell of floods in the capital.
The water level of the Yamuna River in the National Capital was recorded at 206.31 metres till 4 pm on Sunday, crossing the danger mark.
Meanwhile, announcements are being made by the administration to vacate low-lying areas.

Yamuna River water levels in the National Capital were measured earlier in the day at 205.81 meters, just slightly above the 205.33 meter danger mark. The Central Water Commission reports that the water level was 205.81 at 7 am today, up from the 205.7m gauged earlier in the morning. Numerous homes in Noida’s low-lying areas were submerged on Saturday as a result of an increase in the water level of the Hindon River. On Saturday, when they arrived, the police issued a warning about the situation.

“Water entered some houses in the low-lying areas…as a precautionary measure, people have been evacuated to a safer place. The situation is normal at the moment and we are monitoring the water level and spreading awareness about it,” said, Sureshrao Kulkarni, Additional Commissioner of Police.
