India Monsoon News updates September 25, 2022: The water level in the Yamuna River in Delhi was flowing above the ‘warning’ level Monday morning on account of heavy rainfall in the basin states and is expected to rise further in the next two days, officials said. The water level at 8 am at the Old Railway Bridge was 204.7 metres which is above the warning level of 204.5 metre, but below the ‘danger’ mark of 205.33 metre. According to a forecast issued by the Central Water Commission (CWC), the level may increase to 205 metres by 9 pm.

After a break of six days, the Southwest Monsoon Monday further withdrew from more parts of Rajasthan. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the withdrawal line now passes through Khajuwala, Bikaner, Jodhpur, and Naliya. Towards the end of this week, monsoon would have retreated from more areas of the Northwest India region, said Met department officials.

Flood water has entered the powerhouse of NHPC’s under-construction 2,000-MW Subansiri hydro project along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border, officials said on Monday. A portion of the temporary guard wall at the powerhouse collapsed on Sunday night after seepage started due to flooding of Subansiri river, following heavy rain in upstream areas in Arunachal Pradesh, a company source told PTI. The machines of one unit of the project, touted to be the company’s biggest hydroelectric project undertaken in India so far, have been installed, while work on the second unit was underway when water entered the building.
