Yamuna recedes in Delhi but flows above danger mark
New Delhi: The water level in the Yamuna started receding in Delhi today morning but stayed above the danger mark of 204.83 metres. Many low-lying areas in the city also remained inundated, a government official said.
"The water level, which rose to 207.20 metres mark (on Wednesday), came down to 207.15 metres around 9 a.m. today. But it is still above the danger mark of 204.83 metres. We expect the water level to reach 207 metres by afternoon," Dharampal, secretary of Delhi's revenue and disaster management department, told IANS.
The official added that the Yamuna's wate level touched 207.25 metres mark by late Wednesday, the highest since 1978 when it reached 207.49 metres, and the food water spilled over to the Outer Ring Road. In 2010, the water level of the flooded river had touched 207.11 metres.
"The water level was so high yesterday (Wednesday) that by 8 p.m. the flood water spilled over to the Outer Ring Road. The Tibetan Market was filled with knee-deep waters. As the water level in the river is gradually coming down, the water on the road is draining out," the official said.
