Scientists track Beastquakes at CenturyLink Field
SEATTLE — It’s been three years since the original Beastquake, the most famous run in Seahawks history. The crowd was so loud it caused a measurable earthquake.
Scientists from the University of Washington are now regularly monitoring seismic activity at CenturyLink Field. Last week, they installed ‘strong motion’ sensors — one on the upper level and one on the field.

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network even created a web site so that you can track seismic activity in real-time during Seahawks games.
