The water level in the Yamuna is likely to rise by at least two metres above the danger mark by tomorrow evening due to release of over 8 lakh cusec water by Haryana, a prospect that has prompted authorities to ask people living in nearby low-lying areas to shift elsewhere. The river was flowing at 204.52 metres this morning, slightly less than the danger level of 204.83 metres.

Considering the possible flood-like situation due to the rising water level, the Delhi government has asked people living in low-lying areas near the river to shift to safer places. "We are taking all precautionary measures to handle the situation," the official said.

Last month too, the Yamuna water level was above the danger levgames in any wael for several days, prompting authorities to shift a large number of people to relief camps.

Now, the question is would these climatic disasters effect Common Wealth Games in any way.
