New Delhi (July 10,2023) : The Delhi government has issued a flood warning after Haryana discharged water into the Yamuna river. The water level in the Yamuna is expected to rise to 205.33 meters, which is the danger mark. The Haryana government has said that it is releasing water from the Hathnikund Barrage due to heavy rains in the state. The Delhi government has asked people living in low-lying areas along the Yamuna to be prepared for flooding.

The Delhi government has also set up 24x7 control rooms to monitor the flood situation. The control rooms have been asked to coordinate with the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and other agencies to ensure that people are evacuated safely in case of flooding. The flood warning comes at a time when Delhi is already facing waterlogging problems due to heavy rains. The rains have also caused traffic jams and disrupted train services.

The flood warning in Delhi is a serious development. The Yamuna is a major river that flows through the city, and flooding can cause widespread damage. The Delhi government has taken steps to mitigate the impact of the flood, but it is important to be prepared for the worst. People living in low-lying areas along the Yamuna should be prepared to evacuate their homes if necessary. They should also have a plan in place for how they will get to safety in case of flooding. The Delhi government should also continue to monitor the situation and take additional steps if necessary. The safety of the people of Delhi is the top priority.
