Delhi Government on Friday issued flood alerts and asked concerned authorities to evacuate people from low-lying areas in the wake of incessant rains in the city.

The decision to issue flood alert was taken at a high-level meeting to review the situation arising out of the continuous rain which has resulted in flood-like situation in many low-lying areas.

The flood control department has been asked to make necessary arrangements to evacuate people from the areas adjacent to the Yamuna river and other low-lying areas.
