The Yamuna water level reached 208.48 metres at 8 am today, Central Water Commission said. As per MCD, 10 schools in low-lying areas of Delhi’s Civil Lines zone, 7 in Shahadra will be closed today due to flood-like situation.

It shot up from 203.14 metres at 11 am on Sunday to 205.4 at 5 pm on Monday, breaching the danger mark of 205.33 metres 18 hours earlier than expected.
