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) underwater volcano.
According to the latest advisory, SRC informed NaDMA that during the period 00:20 am on 2 May and 10:00 am today, 5 May, there have been no volcanic earthquakes associated with the Kick ’em Jenny (KeJ) volcano.
This episode appears to be over.
However, as noted in previous updates, the pattern of behaviour at the KeJ volcano has been changing, and another episode of activity in the short-term should not be ruled out. We will update should the activity change. This will be the last Advisory in this episode.
As a precautionary measure, NaDMA maintains the alert level at YELLOW. The YELLOW alert level means that vessels should observe a 1.5 km/0.93 mile exclusion zone.
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 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.
