Blast, Mushroom Cloud Reported in N. Korea

O.K. This is a little scary.
The blast in Kim Hyong Jik county left a crater big enough to be noticed by a satellite, the source said. ... Experts have speculated that North Korea might use a major anniversary to conduct a nuclear-related test, though there was no immediate indication that the reported explosion on Thursday was linked to Pyongyang's efforts to develop nuclear weapons. "It remains unclear whether it was a deliberately planned nuclear test or it was just an accident," the source in Seoul told Yonhap. "But it doesn't seem to be an ordinary explosion."
