    Heavy rains in New Delhi caused the Yamuna River to overflow, leading to flooding in various areas. Despite the receding water levels, places like the Red Fort and Rajghat remain inundated. Rescue operations by the NDRF and Army are ongoing.

    The Yamuna River reached a record height of 207.71 meters, surpassing the previous record set in 1978. The floodwaters also damaged the regulator of the Irrigation and Flood Control Department, resulting in water reaching the Supreme Court and submerging the ITO intersection and Rajghat.

    To prevent further flooding, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Revenue Minister Atishi requested assistance from the NDRF and the Army. They visited the affected areas and inspected the repair work on the breached regulator. The chief minister assured that repairs would be completed within a few hours.

    As a result of the flooding, traffic diversions were put in place, causing difficulties for commuters. The Delhi Traffic Police advised people to avoid Mahatma Gandhi Marg due to overflowing drain water near the WHO Building.
