Shucks, just a firecracker.

Not to worry.
Nothing to see here.
Just go back to shopping.

2. Hiroshima ~15 kilotons.
Reports so far are about 0.5 kilotons.

You do the math.

5. makes you wonder
If perhaps the whole thing was a hoax on North Korea's part. Load up a couple hundred tons of TNT underground and set it off.

7. NBC News said 1 kiloton and Hiroshima
was 12 kilotons, that looks like 1/12th to me. CBS said 1/60, that would be .2 kilotons. I heard another report it was .5 kiloton the way I figure that would be 1/24th. Now I read on here it may have been a dud??????
