MEXICO FANS CAUSE A ARTIFICIAL EARTHQUAKE AFTER WORLD CUP GOAL
Mexico fans have caused a artificial earthquake after scoring a goal against reigning world champions Germany and beaten them 1 - 0 on Sunday.
Two monitoring stations in Mexico City picked up the temblor the same time Lozano scored, 35 minutes into the match. Seismologists in Chile also said that their instruments detected an artificial temblor at the same time.
John E. Vidale, director of the Southern California Earthquake Center had this to say "that at most such fan-induced earthquakes would generate a 2 on the Richter Scale, which would go unnoticed by the public if it were a typical quake."
By comparison, the 1985 earthquake that killed thousands in and around Mexico City was an 8.0 – at least a million times the magnitude of what the celebrating fans may have caused.
