The National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) continues to collaborate with the Seismic Research Centre (SRC), University of the West Indies to monitor activities at the Kick em’ Jenny (KeJ) under water Volcano.
According to the latest Advisory from SRC, during the period 00:20 am on 2 May to 2:00 pm on 3 May, no volcanic earthquakes associated with the unrest at the Kick em’ Jenny volcano have been recorded.
Given the pattern of activity observed during this period of unrest, this quiet period cannot yet be taken as an indication that this volcanic episode is over.
The alert level remains YELLOW. The YELLOW alert level means that vessels should observe a 1.5 km/0.93 mile exclusion zone. However, as a precautionary measure, the marine community is advised to continue observing the secondary exclusion zone of 5 km/3.1 miles. The SRC has advised that heightened alert is necessary for the exclusion zone.
The general population is reminded that the official advisories on this matter, and all other disaster related matters will come directly from the National Disaster Management Agency. NaDMA wishes to remind the general public about the responsible use of social media.
The population can rest assured that SRC continues to monitor the system and NaDMA will continue to liaise with SRC and provide updates as the activity warrants.
