New Delhi, Aug 19 : The Yamuna river on Monday crossed the “warning mark” of 204.50 meters and was set to breach the “danger mark” of 205.33m in the evening, forcing authorities to ask people living in low-lying areas to evacuate to safer places.

A union Home Ministry spokesman said the river’s water level was expected to cross the danger level around 6 p.m., inundating areas along its banks.

And by Wednesday, the Yamuna’s level would touch 207m, the Ministry said.

The Delhi government said that it was on an alert mode in tandem with the Centre.

A Delhi government statement said Haryana had released 8.28 lakh cusecs of water from the Hathni Kund barrage.

This water was set to reach Delhi “with full force” in the next two days, Kejriwal said, after presiding over a meeting of senior officials.

Authorities halted traffic on one of the old bridges that connect Delhi with its eastern wing amid the rising water level.

People living in low-lying areas have been asked to shift to tents pitched on higher ground.
