On Sunday, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a red alert for extremely heavy rains in various parts of the state until July 10. The Ganges in Rishikesh saw a significant rise in water levels, reaching the Triveni Ghat Aarti Sthal, prompting the SDRF to issue a warning to travelers to avoid staying at the ghats overnight.

Lokjeet, Superintendent of Police (Rural), Dehradun, stated that the police are in constant communication with the administration, and residents near riverbanks have been displaced. Efforts are ongoing to prevent people from approaching the riverbanks.

The Char Dham Yatra has also been temporarily suspended due to the adverse weather conditions.
