"As of Monday, the water levels in major rivers, including Tuul, Terelj, Kharaa, Yeruu, Kherlen and Onon have exceeded the warning levels by 5 cm-45 cm due to continuous downpours since early last week," the country's National Agency for Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring said in a statement.
