Beast quake: Seahawks fans rock stadium again

Fans at CenturyLink Field watch during the first quarter of an NFC divisional playoff NFL football game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints in Seattle, Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014. AP Photo/John FroschauerSeismologists 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 Univ. 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.
