Padubidri, July 16, 2018: It appears that Sea erosion has become an all time high and intensified in Kaipunjal and Ermalubada in the Kaup taluk.
A private lodge in the proximity of Jwali beach, Kaup, has been partially damaged. Houses and coconut trees in the vicinity face the threat of being washed away by the waves.
Though the permanent protective wall is in a good condition, the boulders laid on the sand several years ago are being washed away, the local people said. Town Municipal Corporation member Kiran Alva has urged to provide a permanent facility for the sea erosion.
Udupi district additional deputy commissioner Anuradha G, Kaup tahsildar Gurusiddappa visited the spot. Speaking on the occasion, the ADC said that complaints have been received regarding the sea erosion at Kaipunjalu and the situation has been observed.
