Seahawk Fans Set Roar Level Record

SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks fans have set a new noise record for loudest outdoor sports stadium, taking back a mark they achieved earlier this season.

An official from Guinness World Records recorded the crowd noise at 137.6 decibels during the Seahawks victory over the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. The record came during the second quarter of Seattle’s 34-7 victory and was announced on the Seahawks Twitter page.

Seahawks fans had set a record of 136.6 in a win over San Francisco in September. The mark was topped by Kansas City fans in October with 137.5 decibels.

To put that in perspective, a jet engine at 100 feet is about 140 decibels.
