The Department of Emergency Management will continue to monitor and keep the public informed of any updates surrounding the Kick ???em Jenny underwater volcano??though the alert level has been reduced to yellow.

The Seismic Research Centre of the University of the West Indies said yesterday that activity levels at the underwater volcano had reduced significantly, resulting in a downgrading of the alert level.

The yellow alert means that vessels should observe a 1.5 km exclusion zone. However, as a precautionary measure, the marine community is advised to continue observing the 5 km exclusion zone.
