Kick em’ Jenny acting up; alert level raised to orange

The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) has announced that the Kick em’ Jenny (KeJ) Volcano has now been elevated to an Orange Alert Level.

KeJ is one of the most active volcanoes in the Eastern Caribbean and as such the University of the West Indies – Seismic Research Centre (UWI SRC) instruments may record increased earthquake activity beneath the volcano during sustained periods.

Overnight, during March 11-12 2018, a substantial increase in earthquake activity associated with the volcano was recorded.
