New Delhi, Aug 22 (PTI) The water level of Yamuna is receding and the river is now flowing below the danger mark of 205.33 metres, an official said on Thursday.



"The level of Yamuna at railway bridge was 206.60 metres at 10 am. It is expected to recede further," the official at the flood department's control room said.

The water level of Yamuna reached the highest level of 206.60 metres Wednesday morning and remained constant for nearly seven hours. The river started receding from afternoon and flowed at 206.44 metres at 6 pm.
