Udupi: Koterayana Betta near Siddapur caves in, people worried

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP)

Udupi, Sep 23: Due to heavy rainfall, Koterayana Betta on the Western Ghats range caved in on Sunday. The hill has caved in for a distance of about three kilometres. Several acres of forest were destroyed in the incident. A huge water body has resulted as a consequence, from which heavy water mixed with slush is flowing towards Mannadi village.

The location is around five kilometres away from Madamakki in Hebri taluk. The people living at the foot of the Western Ghats are apprehensive as the hill has suffered a landslide for the first time, and water is gushing out at tremendous speed. They are fearful about the chances of further landslides in the region which might pose danger to them.

On Tuesday September 22, range forest officer of forest wildlife division at Agumbe, Sandesh, along with forest staff, visited the spot and inspected the damage. The team could not properly calculate the actual destruction of forest in this incident. No other government officials visited the site. Study about the possible dangers from this landslide in future is yet to be undertaken.

    It is very unfortunate and sad that one disaster is coming after another. I don't where we are heading to. God only can help all of us to prevent more hardship which is coming on our way.

    Sad. Natural disasters everywhere. Top of that pandemic killing thousands. Whole world is under quarantine. This is a sign for the world of Jesus coming . Many countries are still at war and many are preparing for war. Jesus says repent and I will save you. What a merciful lord and saviours of ours.

    Still people are after power and money.
    I dont understand if they ever think of Eternal Life which does not end ever.
    People have to think about next life after this transit on earth.
    Baggage has to be packed for the journey.
