Mexico’s World Cup goal against Germany may have triggered ‘artificial earthquake’

Mexico’s FIFA World Cup goal that led its team to an upset win over Germany on Sunday triggered so much excitement that it may have caused what officials called an “artificial earthquake” in Mexico City.

SIMMSA, a “seismic monitoring network” in Mexico, tweeted that at least two sensors inside the capital city detected a quake just after 11:30 a.m.

The agency said it “possibly” could’ve been caused by “massive jumps” during Mexico’s goal during the 35th minute.
