Kick ‘em Jenny, or as locals would call it Kick – am – Jinny is an undersea volcano near the north coast of Grenada but before Ronde Island which is an island between Grenada and Carriacou.  There was rumbling reported this past Thursday, prompting the regional disaster authorities to be on alert.  A series of earthquakes has begun in the area of the volcano  and locals have noticed an increase in bubbles in the ocean above the volcano. Officials have stated the volcano poses no immediate tsunami threat to Grenada and neighboring islands of the Lesser Antilles.

An “orange” alert has been issued by the Seismic Research Center at the University of the West Indies which means that the volcano is expected to erupt within 24 hours.

It has been reported that the seismic activity increased in the volcano starting on July 11.

On a recent exploration of the area showing much activity, a crew is surprised to discover a colonization of extremophiles in a dangerous subduction zone.

 

Kick ’em Jenny was discovered in 1939 and since then it has erupted at least 12 times, most recently in December 2001. The volcano rises 1,300 meters (4,265 feet) above the seafloor and has reportedly not caused any injuries or deaths.
