According to the US Geological Survey, there isn't enough information to conclude the nature of the natural disaster yet.
We start in North Korea where a magnitude 2.9 natural disaster registered shortly after midnight, striking near the regime's nuclear test site. According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, the quake originated some 10 kilometers away from where the communist regime conducted its sixth and largest nuclear detonation.
The United States Geological Survey reports a preliminary magnitude 2.7 quake struck near Livermore, California on Thursday. The authorities added that the epicentre of the quake was located north of the Punggye-Ri testing site. The seismic experts and a United Nations nuclear test ban watchdog had referred to the tremor on September 23 as an aftershock of the North's sixth and largest nuclear test. However, since the September 3 underground nuke test, it has seen two other quakes of magnitude 2.6 and 3.2.
"I think the Punggye-ri region is now pretty saturated".
The North's latest nuclear experiment, which it claimed involved the test of a hydrogen bomb, generated seismic waves of 5.7 magnitude, according to the Korean authorities, or 6.3 magnitude based on the US' analysis.
And now the latest quake to hit the region suggesting the detonations have dramatically destabilised the area. These disturbances are more numerous and widespread than seen after any of the North's previous tests, 38 North said.
Hong Tae-kyung, a professor of earth system science at Yonsei University in Seoul, said: "The reason why Punggye-ri has become North Korea's nuclear testing field is because this area was considered stable and rarely saw tremors in the past". In 2006, North Korea's first detonation triggered a 4.1-magnitude quake.
