Reasons of North Korea Nuclear Site Collapse
North Korea conducted five nuclear tests at site and the September 2017 test caused a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. However, it was felt across the northern border. The country further claimed that they tested the Hydrogen Bomb. Earthquakes and Landslides further caused a speculation. Chinese experts found that the aftershock became a reason of rock collapse in the mountain. They also elaborated that it is vital to regularly monitor the possible leakage of radioactive materials.
