New Delhi: 

Water level of river Yamuna that crossed danger mark earlier this week has receded, averting the danger of flood in Delhi for now. On Thursday, the level of water in the river was recorded at 204.95 metres, 0.38 metres below the danger level mark of 205.33 metres, news agency ANI reported.

The water level had started receding on Wednesday and came down to 206.50 metres.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted that he was relieved that people living in the low-lying areas were timely evacuated to safety and no deaths took place.

On Tuesday, water from the overflowing river had entered in the low-lying areas at Kisan Colony and Yamuna Khadar near Inter State Bus Terminal (ISBT) and the cremation ground at Nigambodh Ghat also got submerged.

For precaution, the vehicular movement on Loha Pul, an old iron bridge over the river connecting East Delhi to Old Delhi, was closed.

Over 6,000 people were shifted from low-lying areas to safer places in temporary tents.
