Russian Hydrometeorological Center Records Jolts Linked to North Korean Test

The Russian Hydrometeorological Center registered a magnitude 5.3 earthquake presumably triggered by Pyongyang's Friday nuclear test.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A magnitude 5.3 earthquake was registered in North Korea with presumed links to the country’s fifth and latest nuclear tests, the Hydrometeorological Centre of Russia said Friday.

"At 03:30 a.m. Moscow time [12:30 GMT], tremors 5.3 in magnitude were registered in North Korea, presumably a nuclear test," the weather agency told RIA Novosti.

Pyongyang has officially confirmed that it successfully carried out a new nuclear test early Friday after a seismic event was registered near a test site in the country’s northeast. North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA) announced the test confirmed that "standardized" nuclear warheads can be mounted on "strategic ballistic rockets."
