Taylor Swift‘s ability to not only rock a house but even the earth itself is demonstrated by the ridiculous fact that last year, one of her fans  caused a little earthquake.

In 2023, Taylor had six events at SoFi stadium in Los Angeles. Caltech and UCLA did a study to measure the amount of ground shaking during those shows. It turns out that the Swifties that day moved the needle.

This investigation was overseen by seismologist Gabrielle Tepp, who says evidence indicates that significant seismic activity was recorded during her “Eras” concert on August 5, which drew over 70,000 attendees.

With remote stations located within 5.6 miles of the stadium, Tepp and colleagues tracked every song on her extensive set list. According to their records, her rendition of “Shake It Off” registered as the highest point of the evening, with a peak magnitude of 0.851.

Tepp points out that the reverberations from the music itself aren’t included in this; instead, the seismic sensors recording this were catching the people jumping and dancing. Tepp claims that the meter took note of her rendition of “Love Story” that evening as well.

Overall, according to Tepp, the L.A. concert movement produced tremors equivalent to a magnitude-2 earthquake, which is quite minor but still quite remarkable coming from the Taylor fan base!

According to reports, her Seattle fans caused seismic-level waves earlier in the summer.

The Swifties have incredible movement powers!
