The explosion of a hydrogen bomb in the DPRK did not affect the radiation background of Primorye

Radiation background in the Primorsky Territory remains normal on Monday, there is no detectable effect of underground nuclear tests conducted on Sunday by the neighboring North Korea, the Siberian Regional Emergency Center said. Real-time measurements are carried out by almost 40 sensors.

As reported, on Sunday, residents of at least five localities in the region experienced an earthquake of up to two points: “It was felt in Vladivostok, Ussuriysk, Posyet, Zarubino, and Kraskino villages in the Khasan district. Buildings and infrastructure examined 42 interdepartmental task forces, no damage, no tsunami alert was announced. ”

On Sunday, the DPRK authorities sent a television message to their people and the whole world about the successful testing of the hydrogen bomb. The explosion was carried out underground, and led to shocks of magnitude up to 5,6 (according to some estimates, up to 6,7). This charge, said the North Korean authorities, can be installed as a warhead on an intercontinental ballistic missile. South Korean news agencies Yonhap cites expert opinions, according to which, the charge is 5-6 times more powerful than the previous tested bomb, and can reach 80 kilotons. Japanese military experts rated the strength of the charge in 70 kilotons. The test of nuclear weapons from North Korea became the sixth.
