<P>breaking cheers of Seahawks fans caused small earthquake before crucial victory over New Orleans rivals</P>
<P></P>
<P>The Seattle Seahawks fans have set a new noise record for loudest outdoor sports stadium, with their stomps and cheers so loud Monday night they Authentic Jarome Iginla Jersey triggered a detectable Women's Brad Marchand Jersey earthquake.</P>
<P></P>
<P>A University of Washington professor says the noisemaking of Seattle Seahawks' fans registered on a nearby Zdeno Chara Authentic Jersey seismometer with the same energy as a magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake during Seattle's 34 7 Monday victory over New Orleans.</P>
<P></P>
<P>'Beast Quake': A Seattle fan holds a sign that reads LOUDER as he yells during Monday's game. The combined cheers of fans were measured at a record breaking 137.6 decibels</P>
<P></P>
<P>A University of Washington earth sciences professor says the legendary noisemaking of Seattle Seahawks' hometown fans registered on a nearby seismometer with roughly the same energy as a magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake.</P>

<P>'Roll tide': Alabama fan leaves rude note refusing to tip server because he supports rivals Auburn</P>
<P></P>
<P>Delta kicked 50 passengers off flight the Sunday after Thanksgiving so it could charter a plane for the Florida Gators basketball team</P>
<P></P>
<P>John Vidale is director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network. He says it's hard to compare the fans' half minute of stomping, jumping and shouting during a first quarter fumble return for a touchdown to the quick 'pop' of a small earthquake. Still he says, 'the energy is very roughly the same.'</P>
<P></P>
<P>Vidale says the seismometer registered 'three or four more good bursts,' which always coincided with Seahawks' touchdowns.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The UW seismometer in question is located just north of CenturyLink Field.</P>

<P>Loud league: Seahawks fans took back their title of loudest in the NFL Monday when they beat the previous record of 137.5 decibels by the Kansas City Chiefs by just .1 decibels</P>
<P></P>
<P>Seahawks fans previously set a record for audience noise at an outdoor stadium on September 15 with a roar that reached 136.6 decibels in a win over San Francisco.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The mark was topped by envious Kansas City Chiefs fans in October with 137.5 decibels.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Now the crown has back to Seattle with an official Guinness measurement of 137.6 decibels at the December 2 game.</P>
<P></P>
<P>To put that in perspective, a jet engine at 100 feet is about 140 decibels.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The most intense rumble came after Seahawks' defensive end Michael Bennett recovered a fumble by New Orleans' quarterback Drew Brees in the first quarter and ran it back for a touchdown, said Vidale.</P>
