As the BNS informed the seismic system operating in Lithuania’s Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (INPP) registered North Korea’s nuclear test carried out on 25 May.

“The signal is weak and is similar to that of a faraway earthquake,” the Lithuanian Geological Survey said in a press statement.

As the Statement reminds the INPP Seismic Monitoring and Seismic Alarm System, consisting of four stations located within a 30 km radius from the plant, was launched in 1999.

The system in question monthly registers a few local incidents – mostly explosions – and over a hundred heftier earthquakes, receiving their signals from seismically active regions around the globe.
