The US Geological Survey (USGS) detected a 2.9-magnitude quake in area close to North Korea's nuclear test site on Thursday evening, but is now unable to explain the nature of the seismic event.

All of North Korea's nuclear explosions since 2006 caused earthquakes with a magnitude of 4.3 or above. However, the South Korean experts have said that the tremor did not appear to be man-made. Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho said last month the North could test "an unprecedented scale hydrogen bomb" over the Pacific Ocean, in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's threat to "totally destroy" the country.

Another issue that could keep North Korea from using Punggye-ri for nuclear tests the nearby active volcano of Mt. Paektu, Yonsei University's Hong said.
