Delhi Weather Update LIVE | Old railway bridge closed to train traffic after Yamuna water level rose
Yamuna in Delhi flowed more than a meter above the dangerous 205.33 meters on Monday morning, with authorities suspending operations of trains on the Old Railway Bridge (ORB). River levels at the ORB hover around dangerous levels, after reaching an all-time high of 208.66 meters on July 13.
It breached the danger mark again on Sunday after discharge from the Hathnikund dam spiked into the river following heavy rains in parts of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. A railway official said the movement of trains on the ORB had been suspended due to the rising water level of the Yamuna River.
