Kick 'em Jenny is an active submarine volcano on the Caribbean Sea floor, located 8 km north of the island of Grenada and about 8 km west of Ronde Island in the Grenadines. It is among the Caribbean's most active volcanoes.
The first record of the volcano was in July 1939, when an eruption broke the sea surface, sending a cloud of steam and debris 275 m into the air and generating a series of tsunamis around two metres high.
Volcanic episodes at Kick em’ Jenny, since 1939, usually consist of several eruptions lasting over several days before returning to repose; therefore, NaDMA advises vigilance.
NaDMA in collaboration with the University of the West Indies Seismic Research Center will continue to monitor the activities of Kick em’ Jenny and will update accordingly.
