Man-made earthquake in Mexico City after Mexico scores goal in the World Cup


by Monique Shull

Mexico's winning goal over Germany in the 35th minute of their World Cup game Sunday, had everyone jumping for joy...literally!

The seismic monitoring network in Mexico wrote in a Twitter post, “The #sismo detected in Mexico City originated artificially. Possibly by massive jumps during the Goal of the selection of # Mexico in the world. At least two sensors inside the City detected it at 11:32.”

A similar event happened in Seattle in 2011 when Marshawn Lynch caused a small earthquake at CenturyLink Field while scoring a touchdown.

Two different sensors in the city itself proves just how big this moment was for Mexico.
