New Delhi floods: Reasons for the flood-like conditions in the nation's capital

On Thursday, July 13, 2023, a vehicle travels across a flooded road close to the Red Fort as the overflowing Yamuna river floods low-lying regions.

The raging Yamuna in New Delhi grew to an incredible 208.48 metres on Thursday morning, flooding neighbouring streets and public and private infrastructure and putting a tremendous amount of hardship on those who live near the river

Over the past three days, New Delhi has experienced an unprecedented rise in the Yamuna's water level.

If the water level rises even further, portions of Mayur Vihar, Laxmi Nagar, Sarai Kale Khan, Badarpur, Jamia Nagar, and Shaheen Bagh could flood.
