Taylor Swift Concerts Actually Caused Seismic 'Swift Quakes,' According To Science

Never underestimate the Swifties' strength, especially when they're shaking it off or screaming along to Taylor Swift's music. I mention this because they can occasionally create 

earthquake-like activity. Trust me, I mean this literally, because there is now scientific evidence to support it. Swift's event in Seattle triggered record-breaking seismic activity last summer

 while she was touring the United States on her Eras Tour, which is one of her many upcoming projects that Swifties are enthusiastic about. According to CNN, 

during her concert in July, supporters created "seismic activity equivalent to a 2.3 magnitude earthquake." A new study from the California Institute of Technology and UCLA, 

 titled Shake to the Beat: Exploring the Seismic Signals and Stadium Response of Concerts and Music Fans, has been published, and it breaks down seismic data 

 from the pop star's Los Angeles shows that also caused earthquake-like activity, or a "Swift Quake," if you will. 

The goal of this study was to comprehend the "atypical seismic signals" created during Swift's shows using ARS Technica, and then apply that knowledge to "improve 

the analysis" of similar events. Noting that what transpired at the Eras Tour produced signals akin to those from volcanoes or trains, the study attempted to determine if
