Low-lying areas and their surrounding villages have been severely affected by floods in India.
The situation in the capital, New Delhi, has been exacerbated since the water level in the Yamuna River surged well over the danger mark.
Heavy downpours and incessant rainstorms have swollen the waterway considerably over the last few days, with the level topping the warning standard of 204.8 meters.
Normal life has been crippled in the region. Residents were swamped as the river breached its banks, flooding fields and shanties nearby.
New Delhi's total of 617 millimeters of rainfall has set a new record during this year's monsoon season. The torrential weather has caused extensive flooding in several parts of northern India, and brought devastation to life and property.
