High alert in Yamunanagar district after rise in Yamuna water level; Has the alert increased the risk?


Yamunanagar :
The district administration on Saturday sounded a high alert in the district with the water level in the Yamuna river reaching 4,24,763 cusecs at the Hathnikund barrage at 1 pm due to incessant rain in Himachal Pradesh and Haryana.

Yamunanagar Deputy Commissioner Girish Arora announced a high alert in the district after the water level crossed 2.12 cusecs mark at 9 am.

The flood-like situation is normally announced when the water level touches 2.5 lakh cusec mark in the barrage.

Arora said they also intimated the army and asked them to remain alert.
He said a team of National Disaster Management Authority (46 personnel) had already reached here.

“We also informed the administration of Karnal, Panipat and Sonepat districts and Delhi administration about the increase of water level in the barrage,” said Arora.
He said there was no report of damage to property or loss of life in the district.

He added that they had identified seven villages--Lapra, Bibipur, Odri, Kalanaur, Mandauli, Gagar and Mali Majra of the district--where floodwater might enter when the water level of Yamuna river crossed the mark of 3 lakh cusecs.

“The water level of the Yamuna has crossed the mark of 4,24,763 lakh cusecs; therefore, special vigil is being kept on the said villages,” the DC said.

The DC has asked officials to monitor the situation around the clock, especially in Chhachhrauli and Radaur blocks.

The district administration has also set up a flood control office in the mini secretariat and at all blocks in the district besides launching a helpline number for an immediate response.

The administration has issued warning asking people not to go near the river, canal and drains.

The DC said directions had been issued to all tehsildars, block development and panchayat officers and other officials to give regular reports about the situation and keep a close eye on the low-lying areas.
