It has all gone shaky pudding around Grenada. 2 biggish underwater quakes to the East and now Kick Em Jenny the big underwater volcano to the North is kicking up her heals with 200+ microquakes in the last 14 days. Coasties have issued an orange alert. Should be OK at anchor where I am but it is a reminder that I am sailing in a tectonically active area.

The chicken littles are out in force.

The government is advising vulnerable areas to prepare to evacuate. They are neglecting to mention that deep water speed for a tsunami is 10 miles a minute. Max warning time for Grenada and Carriacou is 3 minutes.
