Loss at Anekallu, Valpady being assessed

Staff Correspondent


Vented dams breach at Anekallu and Valpady

Many arecanut and coconut palms uprooted


MANGALORE: The Dakshina Kannada district administration has started estimating the loss at Anekallu near Vitla and Valpady near Moodbidre owing to heavy rain.

Many arecanut and coconut palms in these two places were washed away after vented dams breached at Varkady in Kasargod district and Valpady near Moodbidre.

Heavy rain in Karnataka-Kerala border areas led to the breach of the newly constructed vented dam across the Anekallu stream in Varkady in Kasargod district. Water entered 400 acres of land at Anekallu, and several coconut and arecanut palms were uprooted in rain.

“The land is owned by some individuals,” said Deputy Commissioner N.S. Channappa Gowda.

The vented dam across the Arbi stream near Moodbidre breached and water entered 10 acres of land at Valpady. The breach of dam had also affected the movement of people on either side of the stream.

“The level of water is yet to subside here,” Mr. Gowda said.

Mr. Gowda said that he was waiting for the reports of the Deputy Director of Horticulture on the loss at Anekallu and Valpady. “I am expecting the report from Anekallu in the next two days,” Mr. Gowda said. On the loss incurred at Valpady, Mr. Gowda said an assessment would be done after the floods receded. Based on the reports, he would recommend to the State government to give compensation to the affected farmers, Mr. Gowda said.

Uppinagady recorded 24.2 mm rainfall in the past 24 hours ending at 8 a.m. of Wednesday. Puttur recorded 16.4 mm, Belthangady 17 mm, Sullia 8.4 mm, Bantwal 4 mm, Mangalore 2.2 mm and Mangalore airport 0.6 mm rainfall.

The Meteorological Department has forecast heavy rainfall in isolated places in coastal region in the next 48 hours. Fishermen have been asked not to venture into the sea as there would be strong onshore winds from northwesterly to westerly direction with speeds up to 45-55 kmph.
