Pentagon spokesperson Jamie Davis stated the registered indicators show that the natural disaster was 100% not caused by a nuclear test because it occurred way too far from the coast. Its epicentre was 112 miles (180 km) southeast of the North Korean city of Chongjin.

Information on possible victims and destructions did not arrive.

Pentagon spokesman Maj. Jamie Davis also dismissed the possibility of a nuclear test, pointing to its location and depth, Reuters reported. "It's a natural quake", John Bellini, USGS National quake Information Center geophysicist, was quoted by local news agency Yonhap. The previous occasion when a large quake hit this area of the Sea of Japan was thought to be in 2004.

The quake does not appear to have been caused by a nuclear test, a USGS official said.

"It occurred at 500km below the seabed", he told Yonhap news agency.

It was initially reported as a magnitude 6.0 but was later revised to 5.8. There's no way it was caused by a nuclear test.

The quake was centred far offshore and very deep while North Korea's past nuclear tests were conducted on land.

The Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued no alerts as a result of the quake.
