As evening descended, a tragic flood alert struck Delhi and Noida as the Yamuna river breached its danger mark at 4 pm.

In a heartbreaking turn of events, the Gautam Buddh Nagar administration has issued a flood warning for the low-lying regions along the Hindon, as the water discharge in the river surged relentlessly. The impact was swift and severe – on Saturday, around 200 people from five villages were forced to leave their homes, evacuating to shelter homes, as the alert pierced the air. The Delhi Government finds itself on the edge of despair, grappling with the relentless rise of the Yamuna river, inundated by the overwhelming discharge of more than 2 lakh cusecs of water from the Hathnikund Barrage. Fears and anxieties loom large, pushing the government to desperately adopt proactive measures in a race against time to safeguard the residents, clinging to hope amidst the mounting tragedy. In a sorrowful statement, Revenue Minister Atishi shared the latest update from the Central Water Commission, foretelling the ominous possibility that the Yamuna river may cross the danger level by tomorrow evening. The haunting uncertainty leaves CM Arvind Kejriwal and the entire government with heavy hearts, as they closely monitor the unfolding calamity, taking charge of the response efforts with tearful determination. In a heartbreaking revelation, Atishi disclosed that certain parts of Yamuna Khadar might bear the brunt of flooding if the water level mercilessly rises to 206.7 m. Yet, amidst the darkness, she finds solace in affirming that the government is resolutely prepared to carry out immediate evacuations in these vulnerable areas, desperately holding onto the faint hope of sparing more lives from the clutches of this tragic disaster.
