I think there's a way to tell by the s or p waves. A nuclear blast differs from a real quake.
The USGS shows it as 4.9

Wabby...both Iran and North Korea are constructing or have constructed a circa 1945 Fission Bomb that is too large and too heavy to be placed atop of any North Korean Missile.
This thing is MASSIVE...and they would need a truck to get it to target.

RT @chicoharlan: N. Korea says this device was a "smaller and lighter" atomic warhead."
North Korea's National Defense Commission says the reclusive state will conduct an “all-out confrontation battle” that will include further satellite and long-range launches, as well as what it calls a nuclear test of a “higher level.” It says these actions will be aimed at its sworn enemy, the United States.
Some experts speculate the reference to an enhanced nuclear test likely will be an attempt to detonate a uranium bomb, compared to the plutonium devices North Korea tested in 2006 and 2009.
