Experts heighten alert level for Kick’em Jenny


Experts at the Seismic Research Center of the University of the West Indies have heightened the alert level for the Kick’em Jenny volcano, which is approximately 8km north of Grenada (12.18 degrees North, 61.38 degrees West).



The alert level is currently at ORANGE, which is a highly elevated level of seismic and/or fumarolic activity or other unusual activity.

At this level an eruption may begin with less than 24 hours notice.

Here is a statement issued by the Center today.

On Thursday, July 23rd from 1:25am to 3:00am local time, a strong continuous signal was observed on instruments monitoring the Kick ‘em Jenny submarine volcano. Signs of elevated seismicity (earthquakes) began on 11th July and continue to present.

For the period since the 11th July a total of more than 200 micro and small earthquakes, of varying magnitudes, have been recorded, with the largest, prior to the strong signal, less than magnitude 3.0.

There have also been observations from divers of degassing occurring off the west coast of Grenada in the Moliniere Sculpture Park area.

This activity is being closely monitored by The UWI-SRC and further updates would be issued as more information becomes available.

    Not only for Barbados but for the region. I had a dream a few months ago but never said anything as I have been monitoring the situation.

    Dear God protect these little islands and their inhabitants. I pray for your divine intervention and rebuke the devil as he tries to force himself upon us in Jesus’ name. Amen

    John Went totally agree with you and if no tragedy occurs we should continue to pray as some of of us only remember God in time of need.
