Seismic activity has been recorded in North Korea. This is possibly the 3rd nuke test that the Juche Regime has been promising.

SEOUL (Reuters) – Seismic activity has been detected in North Korea with an earthquake measuring 4.9 magnitude registered by the U.S. Geological Survey, in a move that South Korea said indicated that Pyongyang had carried out a third nuclear test.

The quake occurred at 11:57 a.m Korean time (0257 GMT) and South Korea’s presidential office said that it was “likely” a nuclear test, according to the South’s Yonhap news agency

North Korea is not prone to seismic activity.

No official word yet from North Korea.

    As of 4 AM Tuesday, the Norks are claiming it was a test. 5.1 magnitude event, with an estimated epicenter depth of 1.0 Km (as per the USGS), so yes, it probably was.
