Dr. Joan Latchman

Dr. Joan Latchman of the Seismic Research Centre, at the University of the West Indies says that renewed activity at the Kick em’ Jenny underwater volcano just off the north of Grenada presents no significant threat to coastal regions of neighboring islands.

As a consequence, there is no need to move people away from coastal settlements.

Speaking on the Power Breakfast show this morning, Dr. Latchman said the Research Centre will continue to monitor Kick em’ Jenny’s behavior . The volcano last erupted in 1949.
