Mangalore, 15 June 2010: Heavy rains which lashed the district for the last three days receded on Monday. The region received intermittent rain with sun playing hide and seek. 

Inspite of receding in rainfall, the sea erosion in Ullal region including Kaiko,     Hileriyanagara,  Mogaveerapattana, Kotepura have increased. Two houses and a mosque has been partially damaged due to sea erosion. The tiles of a house was damaged along with wall. The tiles of the mosque were also flown away. Several coconut trees were swallowed by the rough sea in the region.

The residents said they did not sleep till 2 am as the waves were lashing their houses continuously.  In the last 24 hours, Bantwal has received highest rainfall of 100 mm, followed by Belthangady 53.4 mm, Puttur 51.2 mm, Mangalore 50.2 mm, Sullia 26.8 mm.

Heavy rains likely

Heavy rains may lash at isolated places over coastal Karnataka during the next 48 hours, according to a press release from Meteorological Department.  Fishermen have been warned not to venture into sea as strong onshore winds from westerly direction speed occasionally reaching 45-55 kmph is likely to hit the coast in the next 24 hours, the release informed.

Flights commence

As the rains receded and the weather was clear, the flight operation was normal at Mangalore airport on Monday.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Air India official said “Special arrangement have been made to take the passengers of Sunday’s IX-820 Doha-Bahrain-Mangalore flight which was cancelled, on Tuesday. A special flight will arrive from Mumbai on Tuesday morning and depart at 9.30 am.”

The official at Jet Airways said all the flights have landed in Mangalore.  One flight Mumbai-Mangalore which was supposed to land at 10.30 am was delayed and landed at 1.20 am due to the inclement weather, he said.

The main reason for the diversion of several aircrafts for the last three days is delay in repair of Instrument Landing System (ILS) in the Mangalore airport.  The ILS structure was damaged when the ill- fated Dubai-Mangalore Air India Express crashed it before plunging into a ravine at Kenjar.
