Not once but twice have the Seattle Seahawks caused a human-generated earthquake. According to seismologists, fans shook the ground under Seattle’s CenturyLink Field during Saturday’s loss versus the New Orleans Saints.
The scientists consider the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was probably greater than Lynch’s famous “beast quake” touchdown run three years ago, which also occurred during a game against the Saints.
John Vidale of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN) at the University of Washington stated they will know for sure in a few days.
PNSN posted graphs during the game via its Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Seahawks’ fans jumped and stomped their way to magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake in the 2011 NFL playoff game during Lynch’s rambling, tackle-breaking “beast quake” run.
