Isn't this near where they do their nuke tests?

That's awfully deep though. The previous tests were around 1km, this was in the 13km range.

I did see the depth, but I wasn't sure of the test depths. Also I wasn't sure if the nuke tests showed correct depth. It just caught my attention while checking out our east coast quake here!

I just checked my earthquake alert app due to the eq in Canada, saw the nk quake, and thought the same thing...didn't see the depth tho, but could that be due to a deep-water test? how deep is the water there? Perhaps they were trying to trigger a large(r) eq or tsunami...or maybe it's just paranoia...

Thirteen kilometers is a REALLY insane depth to dig just to have a nuclear test chamber. Some of the US tests were in the 2000 foot range, but that's 8 miles down. There's no reason to have a test that deep.
