The water level of the Yamuna river flowing through the national capital has breached the warning level due to discharge of water from a barrage in Haryana, with authorities stepping up precautionary efforts.
Delhi water minister Kapil Mishra said due to the water level nearing the “danger mark”, few people had to be shifted from north Delhi’s Burari.
The warning level for Yamuna is 204 metre while the danger level is 204.83 metre. The highest water level of 207.49 metre in Yamuna was recorded in 1978.
