Mangaluru, June 11, 2019: At least 50 houses (including masjid) in Ullal and Ucchila on the south face outskirts are in serious immediate danger from coastal erosion as the sea turns rough. Rough sea condition occurred due to the depression in the Arabian Sea on June 10 Monday.



The retaining wall of a private resort was washed away due to the rough waves at Mogaveerapattana. Waves lashed houses at Seaground, Subhashnagara, Kaiko, Hilariyanagara, Mukkachery, Ucchila, Someshwara in Ullal region.

Over 40 dwellings in Ullal and 10 houses in Ucchila face the threat of being washed away due to sea erosion. The waves intensified at a masjid in Hilariyanagara. Many families had shifted to their relatives’ houses after the sea turned rough.

Residents also feared a possibility of waves washing away roads at Peribailu and Battappady, leaving residents in Ucchila to Someshwara marooned.

The boulders dumped as a temporary measure, to check sea erosion were washed away by the waves it was observed.

Greetings. Sea erosion is a universal phenomenon but engineering solutions are there.However local PWD engineers are not trained to master this work think just by putting Boulders , the problem will be solved. In fact solution lies in digging sand upto 20 feet depth building 6 feet wide wall with Boulders, Stones, Aggregates
