Beast quake: Seahawks fans rock stadium again

SEATTLE >> Seismologists say Seahawks fans shook the ground under Seattle's CenturyLink Field during Saturday's defeat of the New Orleans Saints, causing another fan-generated earthquake.

The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynch's famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game.

John Vidale of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington told The Seattle Times  they will know for sure in a few days.

Fans jumped and stomped their way to magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake in 2011 during Lynch's rambling, tackle-breaking "beast quake" run.

Good thing it wasn't Aloha Stadium or the rusty structure would have collapsed. But here in Hawaii, we needn't worry as UH football attendance is minimal and continuing to go down.
