CHANDIGARH: Flood alert was sounded on Thursday in Ambala and Yamunanagar districts of Haryana as the Tangri river was flowing over the danger mark.

The work of cleanliness would be handed over to the agency specialised in sanitation for two months on experimental basis which might extend on pretext of good results.

Chandigarh: Within two days of the first monsoon showers, northern India was reeling under the impact of sharp downpours, with parts of Haryana, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh flooded and arterial highways connecting Delhi to northern towns either blocked by swirling waters or threatened with inundation.
