Flood in Noida: 200 Houses Inundated, Hundreds Of Vehicles Submerged In Noida


New Delhi: Flood in Delhi NCR has caused havoc. Hundreds of vehicles were submerged in Noida Eco-Tech area due to rise in the water level of Hindon river on Tuesday. The video of vehicles getting immersed in water went viral on social media. On Tuesday, it rained in Noida for about two hours in the afternoon.
500 people displaced

At least 200 houses on the Hindon floodplains in Bahlolpur, Lakhnavali, Chotpur Colony and Chhajarsi were inundated. About 500 people were displaced as the river's water level crossed 201 metres in Noida.

Officials feared the water level could rise further due to heavy rainfall and flooding in the upper reaches of the rain-fed river.

Over 300 Ola cabs submerged

On Tuesday, over 300 Ola cabs were submerged in village Old Sutyana under Ecotech-3 police station area. It is being told that this is the yard of seized vehicles. These are the vehicles of Ola company. Once upon a time, these cars were taken out as cabs in Ola Company, but their drivers could not pay the installments on time. So Ola kept these vehicles in a farm on the banks of the Hindon river.

It rained heavily in Noida Extension for about one and a half to two hours from 2 pm. The rain accompanied by strong winds gave relief to the people from the heat, but the problems increased due to water logging. The rain was so heavy that the first floor of Noida Extension's Gaur City Society was flooded.

Sewer system is overflowing

The sewer system is overflowing due to rain. The condition is that instead of going down the pipe, rain water is coming back in a flat on the sixth avenue of the society. The entire flat on the first floor has been waterlogged. The resident of the flat has shared the video of this.

After two hours of heavy rains, the problem of water-logging arose in Noida Extension roads and many societies. Apart from Gaur City-1 and 2, Eco Village 1, Galaxy's Societies Campus and basements also got waterlogged. Water entered many houses on the ground floor. However, the water started receding slowly after the rain stopped.
