Stay Away from the Sea Until Tomorrow Night! Life-Threatening Conditions Alert Issued

A warning has been issued advising people to avoid sea bathing due to the possibility of wind and waves rising up to 3 feet in the coastal areas of four Tamil Nadu districts until tomorrow night.

Black Sea Warning Reissued

In Tamil Nadu, residents have been grappling with alternating rain and intense sunlight. Amidst this, a new warning has emerged regarding illegal fishing activities in the districts of Nellai, Thoothukudi, and Kanyakumari.

The Treacherous Kalakkadal

Meteorologists refer to this phenomenon as Kalakkadal, meaning “thief sea” or “fake sea,” due to its deceptive calmness before suddenly turning violent, much like a thief striking without warning. This sudden and unpredictable behavior has led to the term “Black Sea.”

Tragic Loss of Lives

Last April, Tamil Nadu witnessed the deadly effects of this phenomenon, with over 10 lives lost within three days due to the unexpected surge of waves. Now, a fresh warning has been issued for the southern districts of Nellai, Thoothukudi, Ramanathapuram, and Kanyakumari.

Rising Tide Alert

According to a notification from the Indian Ocean Information Center, waves are expected to rise to 2.6 meters in Kumari Sea, 3 meters in Ramanathapuram, and 2.7 meters in Thoothukudi and Nellai districts. This condition is predicted to persist until 11:30 pm tomorrow, with wave intervals decreasing to a span of 13 to 15 seconds.

Public Advisory

The Indian Ocean Information Center has urged fishermen and beachgoers to remain vigilant as rough waves and turbulent sea conditions are expected. Similar warnings have been extended to other coastal states.

Beachgoers and residents are advised to heed these warnings and avoid the sea until conditions stabilize.
