Due to a rise in Hindon water levels, a Ghaziabad village experienced flooding, leading to the rescue of 50 people.

The village of Karhera in Ghaziabad faced severe flooding as water discharge in the Hindon River increased on Sunday. Over 50 people were rescued from the village, which is located on the banks of the Hindon, a tributary of the Yamuna. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and Sahibabad police used motorboats to evacuate residents from the flooded area, where water levels reached over 8 feet.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Bhaskar Verma stated that some villagers were moved to safer locations, while others sought refuge with their relatives. A relief camp has been established in a local school to provide assistance to those affected by the floods.

The Hindon River breached its embankment near the city forest, leading to the submergence of the forest and nearby colonies. As a result, the local administration closed the City Park for safety reasons.

In addition to the flooding in Karhera, the NDRF also conducted rescue operations in Ataur Nangla and Noor Nagar villages under Nandgram police station limits on the previous night. The floods have also impacted livestock and other animals in the region.

Moreover, in Delhi, the water level of the Yamuna River surpassed the danger mark of 205.33 meters once again on Sunday. Heavy rainfall in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh resulted in a surge of discharge from the Hathnikund Barrage into the river, exacerbating the situation.
