Udupi, July 06, 2020: Sea erosion has intensified in Padubidri and Yermal area in Udupi. Many coconut trees were uprooted and washed away due to the strong waves.
The fisheries road, house of Nadipatna Harish Puthran is facing the danger of being washed away due to sea erosion.
The locals alleged that they had drawn the issue of sea erosion to the notice of officials. But, no steps like dumping boulders were taken to check the problem.
The building of Maheshwari Fund is also facing a threat. Fishermen are afraid that the fishing equipment and nets that are kept in the building will be lost.
