Bengaluru, July 5: Heavy monsoon rains have intensified sea erosion in coastal Kartaka with strong surface winds and Arabian Sea water pounding the long west coast, the Met Office said on Tuesday. “Sea erosion has intensified at Malpe, Udyavara, Padukere and Ucchila along the coastline, as sea water surged towards the shore on strong waves and gusty winds during the last 24 hours,” a Met office official told IANS here. With forecast of heavy rains and gusty winds in most places of the coastal region, the Meteorological Office has advised the local fishermen against venturing out into the sea over the next 24 hours or until weather conditions improve. “As the south-west monsoon remains active, moderate to heavy rains will occur in most places in coastal districts and many places over south interior and central parts (Mald) of the state,” the official said.
