The epicentre of the North Korean earthquake, which looks strangely like a nuclear explosion, was located at the end of “Nuclear Test Road.”This is in the same vicinity of previous nuclear tests, in 2006 and 2009.

Check out the Google map for yourself here. The location estimates came from the USGS, which first detected the seismic activity.
