Mild tremors felt in Dakshina Kannada, Kodagu districts

Bengaluru, Jul 1 (IANS): Mild tremors were felt in Kodagu and Dakshina Kannada districts of Karnataka on Friday morning.

Local people of Chembu, Peraje, Karike of Kodagu and Sullia, Sampaje and Kallugundi villages of Dakshina Kannada districts felt the tremors which lasted 4 to 5 seconds at 1.12 a.m. Panicked people rushed out their houses.

This was the fifth time the people of Kodagu-Dakshina Kannada district border hilly areas experienced tremors this week. The people are worried as earth tremors in 2018 were followed by natural disasters in the forms of floods and landslides in the region.

The Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority (KSDMA) has confirmed the earth tremors which took place three days ago as an earthquake with a magnitude of 2.7 on the Richter scale .

Earlier, earth tremors were felt at multiple locations of Kodagu, Dakshina Kannada districts on June 28 triggering panic among people of both the districts.

District authorities and Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority (KSDMA) are looking into the issue.

    Sullia taluk is affected by these earthquakes because it borders on Coorg (Kodagu) District. It is better to separate Sullia from Dakshina Kannada and merge it with Kodagu. If that is done the rest of Daksina Kannada will be safe from these disasterous eathquakes. If Nalinkumar makes up his mind, he can achieve that.

    Seismic zones categorywise Mangalore in zone 3 and can possibly have medium degree quake measuring 4 to 6 on Richtor scale... That is only very very remote and chances are quite negligible... Let us be hopeful and pray for the better...

    Most of the people there have became Andha Bhaktas. They love and worship their political parties leader rather than God. Always first God In any religion, then politicians. So I think God may be worried.

    We remember god when some calamity befalls us . We don’t remember his commandments when we are in power . We don’t treat everyone equally and instead of gods rule we want our own rule to be implemented on others . God says , that they plan and I plan but my plans are superior. I hope and pray that nothing befall people of this region but looking at the recent past developments of hate mongering and malice God is warning them .
