New Delhi (July 14,2023) : The water level of the Yamuna River in Delhi has receded slightly, but it remains above the danger mark. On Friday morning, the water level was recorded at 208.40 meters, which is still 0.20 meters above the danger mark of 208.20 meters. Despite the slight receding of the water level, several areas in Delhi are still flooded. The Supreme Court and Rajghat were both submerged in water on Thursday night. The water has also entered several other areas, including ITO, near Kashmere Gate, and other prominent roads.

The Delhi government has shut down schools, colleges, crematoriums, and even water treatment plants in the affected areas. The government has also deployed the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) to help with rescue and relief operations. The water level of the Yamuna is expected to continue to recede in the coming days. However, the Delhi government has warned that the situation remains critical and that people should be prepared for the possibility of further flooding.
