Jammu, Sep 3 (UNI) The water level in the Chenab river crossed the danger mark at Akhnoor last evening coinciding with non-stop rains in the Kashmir valley, which resulted in sounding of a flood alert, officials said today.

The Chenab river crossed the danger mark of 35 feet in Akhnoor.

However, the water level of the river was recorded at 38 feet on Friday night while it came down to 36 feet, one foot above the danger mark, yesterday evening, Irrigation and Flood Control Chief Engineer V K Abrol said.

He said the Tawi river was flowing below the danger mark of 14 feet, despite its water level going up to 12.5 feet last night, adding it reduced to 9.5 feet this afternoon.

''Army, police and civil administration have been alerted in the villages falling on the banks of the Chenab river,'' Mr Abrol said.
