SRC AND NaDMA CONTINUE TO MONITOR ACTIVITIES AT KICK 'EM JENNY

St. George -- The Seismic Research Centre (SRC), University of the West Indies continues to monitor activities at the Kick 'em Jenny under water Volcano just off Grenada and to provide updates and reports to the National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA).

 

During Thursday night, the SRC recorded events in the Kick 'em Jenny area which indicate that there was a second small eruption, following the first one recorded during the night before.

Seismic activities continue in the area and residents in the north of Grenada will continue to experience very low magnitude tremors.

The Orange alert remains in effect, and therefore means that all ships must strictly observe the five kilometer exclusion zone off Kick 'em Jenny.

It should be noted that the undersea volcano remains well below the surface, which eliminates any threat of a major tsunami.

The public is reminded that there is no need for panic, and that they should go about with their daily lives as normal.  Official advisories on the matter, when needed, will come from the National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA).
