Tremors caused by a suspected nuclear test in North Korea were at least ten times as powerful as the last time Pyongyang exploded an atomic bomb a year ago, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said on Sunday.

It is bound to increase the tension hours after United States President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe talked by phone about the "escalating" nuclear crisis.

Experts monitoring the situation in China and South Korea have confirmed a nuclear test was carried out in North Korea this afternoon.

A U.S. official who studies North Korea's military and politics said that seismic data on the tremors was being analysed, although the location suggested another nuclear test.

Or it can choose membership of the worldwide community and the security and prosperity that comes with it.

The Korea Meteorological Administration estimated that the blast yield was between 50 to 60 kilotons, which would be about five times stronger than the September 9, 2016, test.

Spain told the North Korean Embassy on Thursday to reduce its staff in the country in protest Pyongyang's repeated missile launches and nuclear weapons tests.

Trump has warned that the United States military is "locked and loaded" and that North Korea would face "fire and fury" in the event of further provocation.

It described the weapon as "a multi-functional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes".

"We thought it might have been an natural disaster", said Bai Jin, sitting in an outdoor square near Starbucks with his grandson.

First Day Of School Uncertain For HISD
HISD said it will go to shelters 72 hours before the start of school to locate and organize transportation for students. Officials at several districts and charters said they had solid academic reasons for starting school before Labor Day.

North Korean state television claimed that the country had tested a hydrogen bomb "with complete success".

"There is possibility that North Korea carried out a nuclear test today".

Kim Jong-un, the country's leader, inspected the new weapon during his visit to the nuclear facility.

"North Korea's nuclear and missile development programme is a threat that is more grave and urgent to the safety of our country and has entered a new stage". That would be a major step forward for Pyongyang, which says its missile development is part of a defensive effort to build a viable nuclear deterrent that can target USA cities.

He said New Zealand will join the global community in considering a response.

Japan Meteorological Agency's natural disaster and tsunami observations division director Toshiyuki Matsumori speaks next to screens showing the seismic event that was indicated on North Korea and observed in Japan, during a news conference at the Japan Meteorological Agency in Tokyo, Japan, September 3, 2017, following the quake felt in North Korea and believed to be a nuclear test.

"North Korea's reckless conduct poses a grave danger to global peace and security".

It has been subjected to seven rounds of United Nations Security Council sanctions over its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, but always insists it will continue to pursue them.

The state-run Korean Central News Agency's latest report claimed North Korea "recently succeeded in making a more developed nuke".

"I'm not too anxious because I think China and North Korea have a pretty good relationship", Wu said.
