NFL fans 'cause earthquake' during game in Seattle
The Seahawks fans registered with seismic activity detectors on Monday night
Fans of the Seattle Seahawks were so loud during their NFL game against New Orleans Saints that their celebrations registered as a minor earthquake.
An early first-quarter touchdown was met with frenzied celebrations inside CenturyLink Field, so much so that those at the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network detected vibrations.
So loud were the fans during their side's 34-7 victory that they measured between a magnitude 1 and 2 earthquake.
Fans of the Seahawks are growing a reputation for their ear popping shows of support. In 2011, the fans were picked up by a nearby seismic recording station while earlier this year, CenturyLink Field entered the Guinness Book of World Records for the noise created.
