The electrifying performances of Taylor Swift at Lumen Field in Seattle caused seismic activity equivalent to a 2.3 magnitude earthquake, as confirmed by seismologist Jackie Caplan-Auerbach.
She picked up the ground-shaking vibrations caused by the enthusiastic dancing fans, and compared it to the legendary 2011 “Beast Quake”, when the Seattle Seahawks fans went absolutely wild.
Well, it seems like Taylor Swift’s fans were just as passionate and energetic!Both nights were completely sold out, with a staggering 72,171 fans attending the Saturday show alone.
Caplan-Auerbach stumbled upon a comparison between Swift’s concerts and the seismic activity in a Pacific northwest earthquake group she moderates. Intrigued, she decided to analyze the seismic data from both events. To her astonishment, she found striking similarities in the patterns and even double the shaking.
It’s incredible to think that Taylor Swift’s performances have such a profound impact, not only on her fans’ hearts but also on the very ground beneath their feet.
