Sullia: The incessant rain has caused much flooding and landslides rendering several families homeless and forced to live on the hills.

On August 17th, about 18 houses were reportedly damaged and about 200 people were shifted to temporary shelters in Kallapur, Parapu, Panemangaluru, Kasaba and Kulkunda. The torrential rains have inundated several acres of crops in Puttur, Kadaba, Belthangady and Sullia taluks.

“Landslides are occurring at Monnangeri regularly. We were stranded at home. Now, we have left all our cattle, dogs to fend for themselves and are staying at relief camp,” said a lady victim.

“On hearing a loud thud (of a landslide), I along with my daughter, who is studying in Class IX, we ran for life. We have left behind our dog, domesticated fowl, cat, cash, gold ornaments back at home. I have household things worth Rs 10,000 at home. I do not know whether my house is still intact, and what would have happened to my cattle and dogs,” said another victim taking shelter at the gruel centre.

“There are patients with diabetes, hypertension and fungal infection in legs, who are being treated at the centre,” informed a doctor. A team of 14 doctors from KVG Medical College are camping at the gruel centre taking care of the medical needs of the victims.

“Donors have supplied rice and vegetables to the centre. The food is cooked at the centre for victims. The local residents and the youth organisations are lending a helping hand. Even the sandals, clothes, bed sheets are supplied to the victims. We are supplying even hot water for bathing infants at the centre,” informed the village accountants of Sampaje and Sullia, Ramesh and Shivaraj, respectively, who are overseeing arrangements at the gruel centre.
