Increase in seismic activity in underwater volcano reported in Grena

Saint George, February 11 (Prensa Latina) Grenada authorities today maintain monitoring of the underwater volcano Kick’em Jenny, located eight kilometers from the northern coast, after reports of an increase in its seismic activity.

The Seismic Research Center of the University of the West Indies (UWI SRC) informed the National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) about such an increase, recorded from 23:14 local time last Friday, according to the Now Grenada news site.

The greatest activity of this type occurred the day before and was perceived in the north of the Caribbean nation.

The UWI SRC said it will continue to monitor the volcano and provide updated analysis based on data generated by four fully operational seismic stations, while NaDMA will remain vigilant.

Based on the information obtained, the alert level for Kick’em Jenny remains at yellow, which means that all maritime interests should maintain the 1.5 kilometer exclusion zone, the media outlet stated.

Located on the shipping route between Grenada and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, the volcano has erupted several times since it was first recorded in 1939.
