The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) has announced that the activities at the Kick ’em Jenny submarine volcano have ceased and returned to normal.

This update follows information received from the Seismic Research Centre (SRC) at the University of the West Indies.

Since Sunday, February 11, 2024, the volcanic activities have ceased, and the seismic activity at the volcano has returned to normal levels.

Despite this positive development, the alert level at Kick ’em Jenny remains at YELLOW.

Therefore, an exclusion zone of 1.5 km from the summit of the volcano is still in effect and should be strictly observed.

Currently, there are four seismic stations monitoring Kick ’em Jenny in the area of Grenada.

It is worth noting that in 2018, there was a period of high-level seismicity at the volcano that was not followed by an eruption.

Similarly, another period of heightened seismic activity occurred from April 11 to June 5, 2020, which also did not result in eruptive activity.

Earthquakes associated with Kick ’em Jenny volcanic activity are often felt in northern Grenada, the Grenadines, and at distances up to 400 km from the volcano.

Despite the cessation of activities and the return to normal, authorities continue to monitor the situation closely to ensure the safety of the public.

For further updates and information, the public is advised to stay tuned to official channels and adhere to all safety instructions issued by NEMO and the SRC.
