Something strange seems to be happening in North Korea, since their recent test of a hydrogen bomb.
Tensions have been mounting between North Korea and the United States which is sparking fears that a nuclear war could be on the horizon.
The country announced recently that it conducted its sixth and most powerful test of a hydrogen bomb.
The test triggered an 6.3-magnitude artificial quake — ten times larger than any of North Korea’s previous attempts.
Arial footage from pilot Aram Pan, who has been flying over North Korea for a project, shows that North Korea’s capital city, Pyongyang, with a population of about 2.58 million, appears to be deserted
Both urban and rural areas showed no signs of human activity anywhere, as if everyone mysteriously vanished.
This could be due to a mandatory evacuation, which is not the first time North Korea has ordered the citizens to evacuate Pyongyang and seek shelter.
In April, Russian and South Korean media reported that a large portion of Pyongyang had been evacuated. Reports claimed that 600,000 people were ordered to evacuate, which had many speculating if the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un, was planning to launch nuclear weapons at United States territories.
New York Post reported:
Is anybody home, Pyongyang?
The North Korean capital looks positively post-apocalyptic in aerial footage that emerged this week.
Aram Pan, 41, a Singaporean pilot, took the video for a project called DPRK360, meant to show the hermit kingdom “from a different perspective.”
Despite being the largest city in North Korea, with a population of about 2.58 million, Pyongyang appears to be deserted.
The footage has emerged as global tensions continue to rise amid diminutive despot Kim Jong Un’s nuclear tests.
On Sunday, the rogue regime detonated what it said was a hydrogen bomb — the country’s sixth and most powerful blast, which triggered a 6.3-magnitude earthquake.
