As a result of the coastal erosion that occurred, said Syarifuddin, it had an impact on two hamlets in Punaga Village, namely, Punaga Hamlet and Malelaya Hamlet.
“The distance from the two hamlets due to abrasion is approximately four kilometers and a number of public facilities such as roads are almost cut off,” he said.
The public cemetery in Punaga Village, Manggarabombang District, Takalar Regency, South Sulawesi, was badly damaged due to the impact of coastal abrasion.
The impact of the abrasion was that dozens of graves of residents were lost and a number of human bones were scattered on the shoreline.
“We find many human bones on this beach. The bones are scattered. This is because many graves or graves have been lost due to the impact of abrasion,” said Syarifuddin Sore.
This condition, said Syarifuddin, was very concerning before the condition of the land was still far away. However, now the shoreline is getting closer.
“If we look at the land first, it is still far out, but since the beach abrasion hit, 40 meters of land on the shoreline has disappeared,” he explained.
Syarifuddin hopes that the regional and provincial governments to the center can immediately intervene to help residents so that the coastal abrasion does not have a worse impact.
