    Rains have stopped in New Delhi, and the water level in the Yamuna River has gone down to 208.25 meters as of 3 pm on Friday. However, some areas like the Red Fort and Rajghat are still flooded. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the Army are working together to rescue people.

    On Wednesday, the Yamuna River reached a record height of 207.71 meters, surpassing the previous record of 207.49 meters set in 1978. The floodwaters even reached the Supreme Court entrance and caused flooding at the ITO intersection and Rajghat due to damage in the Irrigation and Flood Control Department’s regulator.

    Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Revenue Minister Atishi have instructed Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar to ask for help from the NDRF and the Army to prevent further flooding in new areas of the city. Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena and Kejriwal visited the ITO intersection to inspect the repair work on the damaged regulator.

    The Indraprastha water regulator was damaged by the strong flow of the Yamuna River, but repairs are expected to be completed within three to four hours, according to the chief minister. Commuters faced difficulties due to waterlogging at the ITO road, a vital route connecting east Delhi to Lutyens’ Delhi. The Delhi Traffic Police advised drivers to avoid Mahatma Gandhi Marg near WHO Building as drain water has overflowed.
