Boulders have been used as temporary sea walls at several places right from Panambur to Suratkal and Mukka as the fisheries road here is in danger. As another temporary measure sand bags will also be placed.

Mangaluru North MLA Dr Bharath Shetty visited  Chitrapura on Thursday to   have a firsthand account of the problem. He also spoke to the DC on the need to  initiate preventive measures.

The MLA said if the need arose officials will decide on shifting the residents of the area who are facing danger.
