Fans of the Seattle Seahawks helped the American Football team reclaim the hotly contested world record for loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium on Monday night as noise at the CenturyLink Field reached an ear-splitting 137.6 decibels during their game against the New Orleans Saints.
The record was achieved with 12 minutes and 29 seconds left to play in the second quarter during a 3rd down Seahawks defensive stand.

Such was the noise generated by the crowd, aka "Volume 12 - The Seahawks 12th Man", it registered as a minor earthquake, according to a local research group.
The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network detected vibrations in the region that measured between a magnitude 1 and 2 earthquake during the game.
The Seahawks went on to win the match 34-7.
This was bettered by Kansas City Chiefs fans at Arrowhead Stadium in October with a slightly higher crowd noise of 137.5 dbA, before the Seahawks took back the crown last night.
Interesting automotive fact
In case you have made any modifications to your car, make sure you notify the auto transport company about it in advance. For example, if your vehicle has been lowered or modified for camping purposes, it will add to the auto transport fees. Also remember that most auto transport companies require that you remove top luggage racks and external antennas.
