    This means there are highly elevated levels of seismic and/or venting activity and eruption may begin with less than twenty-four hours’ notice.

    Alert levels go from green to yellow, orange and then red.

    According to the Seismic Research Centre (SRC) of the University of the West Indies, this is due to increased seismic activity in the area since July 11.

    Since that day, more than 200 micro and small earthquakes of varying magnitudes have been recorded.

    Today, from 1:25 a.m. to 3 a.m., a strong continuous signal was observed on instruments monitoring Kick ‘em Jenny.

    Divers off the west coast of Grenada have also observed degassing in the Moliniere Sculpture Park area.

    The SRC also advises that the alert level system is primarily for Grenada.

    Currently, the volcano is most dangerous for ships and boats since the gases released by Kick ‘em Jenny can lower the density of the water causing them to sink even if it is not erupting.

    For this reason there is an exclusion zone around the summit of the Kick ‘em Jenny.

    SRC says it will continue to monitor the activity, and update as more information becomes available. (PR/SAT)

    UPDATE: Reduced activities with Kick 'em Jenny - News - JamaicaObserver.com

    The general population is again reminded that there is no need for panic, and that people should go about their daily lives as normal,” he said, adding that the population should only respond to official communication.

    Walters has confirmed that upgraded equipment is being installed at the main monitoring station for Kick ‘em Jenny. He said the equipment will allow the authorities here to provide precise data regarding the activities of the volcano, which last erupted in 2001
