The Yamuna’s water level had earlier surpassed 205.48 meters on Monday morning. Several locations in the nation’s capital were under water, but only slightly over the 205.33-meter danger zone. On July 10, at 5 o’clock in the evening, the Yamuna river in Delhi went over the 205.33-meter danger line. With over 25,000 people being evacuated from flooded areas as a result of the recent heavy rains, Delhi is now facing the worst-case scenario of flooding.

On Sunday night, the water level reached 205.52 meters.


Around 21,504 of the approximately 26,401 individuals who were evacuated from Delhi’s low-lying flood-affected regions are now residing in 44 camps, comprising temporary relief camps and pucca buildings like schools and community centers. The remaining evacuees have relocated to homes of their choosing, either those of their family or rented residences.

Rehabilitation of flood victims may be impacted by a rise in the Yamuna water level.

The rehabilitation of flood-affected families in low-lying districts of the city may be slowed down by the rise in water levels. These families might have to spend a long period in relief camps.

Yamuna flooding Vrindavan, overflowing with Yamuna: On Monday, the Yamuna river level in the Mathura region of Uttar Pradesh stayed above the danger threshold for the third day in a row. Devotees traveling to the twin cities of Mathura and Vrindavan had difficulties since religious sites had been flooded by flood waters. There is also the biggest resting ghat in Mathura here, where the stairs have been flooded and water has seeped into the temples.

It has gotten so bad that the daily “aarti” is now conducted somewhere temporarily. On July 15, the Yamuna’s water level in Mathura rose to 166.08 meters, just above the danger level of 166 meters. On July 17, it rose to a level of 167.28 meters on that day.

Due to water released from Delhi’s Okhla barrage into the Yamuna, Mathura is currently experiencing flooding. The route between Vishram Ghat to Bengali Ghat had water on it on Monday.

We are conducting a campaign in low-lying areas and warning residents to avoid the swiftly moving river. According to Mathura District Magistrate Pulkit Khare, 400 residents of flood-affected villages have been moved to shelter homes as of Sunday using eight boats that have been deployed for the operation by two NDRF units.

Due to waterlogging between the 12 km long Varah Ghat and Chamunda Devi shrine, devotees cannot circumambulate Vrindavan. The neighborhood police boat can currently be observed traveling along the Vrindavan Parikrama Marg.
