The University of the West Indies Seismic Research Center (UWI SRC) yesterday reported there have been high levels of seismic activity at the Kick ’em Jenny underwater volcano in the past few days.

Grenada’s National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) said in a statement that since the episode began on the afternoon of September 30, several events have taken place.

The largest of those occurred on Monday at 3:24am, 3:35am and 3:56am of magnitudes 3.5, 3.5 and 3.3 respectively.

According to Now Grenada online news, the Seismic Research Center is currently analyzing the data and will update further after complete processing.

Grenada’s National Disaster Management Agency has informed marine interests and the general public that the threat level at the volcano, located about five miles north of Grenada, remains at yellow, so the exclusion zone of 1.5 kilometers must continue to be observed.

NaDMA in collaboration with the Seismic Research Center will continue to monitor, update and inform as necessary.
