In North India, heavy rains over the past three days have claimed the lives of more than 37 people. Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan are expected to experience additional severe rains, according to the meteorological department.

Yamuna water levels in Delhi, which on Monday above the danger threshold of 205.33 meters, rose to 206.24 meters Tuesday morning. Due to Haryana’s release of more than one lakh cubic seconds of water into the river from the Hathinikund dam, Delhi is currently in serious danger of flooding.
