Delhi's Yamuna River flowing over danger level.

People of Delhi are thrilling just due to Yamuna River’s overflow.

Waters of Yamuna River are flowing above danger mark. Still Yamuna's water level is around 205.80 mtrs, which was reached at 209.5 mtrs yesterday evening.

At lower areas of the city the river's water has been entered and clogged.

Now the biggest danger may come, because 2 lac cusecs water is coming from the Hathini Kund.

About 8 lac cusecs water was released from Hathini Kund, which is going to reach Delhi in the next 24 hours, and it can create trouble.

Meanwhile, as per precautionary measures, all sewer outlets of the city have been shuted down, from which Yamuna water could enter into the city.

Delhi's Old Yamuna Bridge was closed, due to which the root of many trains are forced to change.

Today nearly 1,200 people have been sheltered in the camps.

The government is making its best efforts despite that, the people of Delhi are fearing against the fury of nature.
