Yamuna Water Level | Delhi Flood News Update:
Delhi Flood News Update:
The problem of flood in Delhi is taking a formidable form. Yamuna river has reached its most dangerous form. In 1978, the water level of Yamuna had reached 207.49 metres. This record was broken only on Wednesday, July 12, 2023. On the rising water level of the Yamuna river, the Delhi government convened an emergency meeting and brainstormed. On Thursday, flood water entered many new areas. At some places, 5-6 feet of water has entered the Red Fort area. On the other hand, due to increase in the water level in Haryana’s Hathini Kund barrage, there is a possibility of releasing more water from there, due to which the problem of flood in Delhi will increase further. Because of this, schools have also been closed in Delhi. Watch every update on Delhi-NCR flood and Yamuna water level
