North Korea Hydrogen Bomb Test Causes An Earthquake Of 6.3 Magnitude

Today, North Korea tested a Hydrogen bomb, which is counted as the 6th nuclear device of the country. The bomb was so powerful that it caused a 6.3 magnitude earthquake and due to this, the entire Korean peninsula was shaken.
According to North Korea, this hydrogen bomb has ‘GREAT DESTRUCTIVE POWER’. This earthquake was witnessed 75 north northwest of Kimchaek; even earlier, nuclear tests have caused tremors.
This hydrogen bomb testing has once again caused a lot of tensions in the peninsula. Even Shinzo Abe, the Japanese PM and Donald Trump, the President of US talked about the increasing nuclear crisis on call. Even citizens of Yanji, a Chinese city on North Korean border experienced this tremor for around 10 seconds.
Korean news agency said,“The H-bomb, the explosive power of which is adjustable from tens kiloton to hundreds kiloton, is a multi-functional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack according to strategic goals.”
Even Kim said that this H-bomb was homemade and he also said that the processes were “Self-reliant”. With this, the country has shown its capability of producing powerful nuclear weapons.
This Hydrogen bomb is very powerful as compared to other kinds of simple weapons or as compared to bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima during World War 2. Moreover, even developing these bombs is very hard.
China’s earthquake administration called it a “Suspected Explosion”. On the other hand, the meteorological agency of Japan said that these tremors were 10 times powerful as compared to other tests of North Korea.
Korean News agency also said,“A hydrogen bomb can achieve thousands of kilotons of explosive yield – massively more powerful than some 10 to 15 kilotons that North Korea’s last nuclear test in September was estimated to have produced, similar to the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945.”
North Korea calls it “Successful”. The tensions have surely increased further with this H-Bomb test. Even Donald Trump reacted to this earthquake. Here’s what he tweeted;

The tweet read, “North Korea has conducted a major Nuclear Test. Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States…..”
This have shaken other countries, let us see how they would retaliate.
