The flood in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad district saved Delhi from further submersion. People living on the banks of river Yamuna are believing so. He says that due to the breach of the Allipur embankment, an area of about 20 square kilometers in Ghaziabad has been flooded by Yamuna flood water. If the embankment had not broken, all this water would have entered inside Delhi. Delhi is already full of water. It can only be guessed what would have been the condition of Delhi with this water from Ghaziabad.
Flood water entered the streets of Rampark area of Loni area.
