Full video update here:
January 5-6, 2016 .
North Korea has detonated a hydrogen bomb underground in the Eastern portion of the country, which simultaneously caused a large man made M5.2 earthquake across the region.
An emergency meeting of the UN security council has been called to occur immediately (within the next day).
Below is a view of the location from Google Earth , with a closeup zoom on a location marked as “Tunnel Entry”.
This is the previous test location of the other nuclear devices made by North Korea. The location under this mountain range is yet unknown, but the seismic coordinates of this blast give away the ultimate zone of detonation.
Here is the seismic wave signature of the underground hydrogen bomb blast per the IRIS earthquake monitoring system:
Below are the charts from the USGS in nearby Korea, and Japan … on these charts you can see the M7.0 (M6.8 which struck India, plus the additional M6.0 (M5.8) which struck Japan several hours prior to the North Korea hydrogen blast.
Then we see the hydrogen bomb blast at 1:30 UTC showing up across the region.
Information on this hydrogen bomb blast earthquake from the USGS:
|Magnitude/uncertainty||5.1 mb± 0.0|
|Location/uncertainty||41.305°N 129.039°E± 6.1 km|
|Depth/uncertainty||0.0 km± 1.8|
|Number of Stations||–|
|Number of Phases||103|
|Minimum Distance||371.25 km (3.33°)|
|Travel Time Residual||0.72 sec|
|FE Region||North Korea (659)|
Worthy to note, it is currently January 6th already in Asia where this occurred.
1/6/16 or 6/1/16…. too weird of a date for N. Korea to choose wouldn’t you say?
Of course that date was picked by North Korea to be a backwards upside down 911 of sorts. Of all the days to choose to do your Hydrogen bomb nuclear “test”… this cannot be an accidental date choice.
Seismically speaking, I don’t have to tell anyone that this man made earthquake is not a good development for multiple reasons.
With the other seismic activity building in the region around Japan to the East, and India to the South (India just hit by a near M7.0 one day ago)… this large man made seismic event caused by the underground hydrogen bomb test is sheer foolishness when it comes to playing around with the seismic safety of the whole West Pacific.
We should see seismic results from this underground blast for weeks to come (if the story of a hydrogen blast is true). Even if it was conventional explosives, we would expect to see aftershocks.
This is only a recent development, thus time will tell the full tale on the ramifications of this underground detonation.
Be on watch for larger earthquake activity globally due to the concentrated electron cascade , plasma energy, and electrical discharge which goes to the Earth’s core following these underground detonations.
