Udupi, July 25, 2013:  With the intensity of rains this year being more than last year, many areas in Udupi are witnessing heightened erosion along the coast. Tenka Yermal, Malpe, Kundapur, Bengre, Madhwanagar in Padubidri and Tenka village in Udupi district have seen increased erosion activity.

The erosion has been so severe that this year a fisheries road in Tenka Yermal which was paver-finished last year eroded in five places on Wednesday during the high tide. Six houses near Ameen Moolastana are facing danger as sea water has reached the walls of these houses crossing the boulders, which have been placed as a last resort against erosion.

About 20 coconut trees of Gangadhar Suvarna was washed away in Thottam area. The house of Vishwanath in Tenka is also facing danger due to intensified sea erosion.

Residents in Tenka village attributed the intensified sea erosion to breakwater constructed by UPCL and urged the authorities to evacuate this makeshift breakwater. Houses of Sushila Karkera, Sundar Suvarna, Lingappa Puthran and Bharathi Kotian in Tenka village are in danger of being damaged. The house of Balappa Gurikara in Bengre is also facing risk.

Sea erosion in Malpe continued even on Wednesday though rain has receded in Udupi. Sea erosion had started near Hanuman Nagar, Kola areas in Malpe on Sunday and continued on Wednesday . All the stone benches on the beach have been washed away and sea water has also entered few houses in Kola area.

This is the first time malpe beach and its surrounding is witnessing the sea erosion.

Here we bring you the beautiful pictures from malpe sea shore as captured by Field Reporter Ajith Karkera on the 23rd July, 2013. Enjoy the high tidal waves from Malpe!
