First CenturyLink noise reading falls just short of record

Seahawks fans at CenturyLink Field tonight are loud, but not record-breaking loud. At least not yet.

Crowd noise in the first quarter measured 130.1 decibels, just short of the 131.76 decibels needed to set a new Guinness World Record.

“1st reading 130.1 so close!!! Let’s get louder!!!”  said a tweet from former Seahawks defensive end Joe Tafoya, whose company set up the attempt to break the record.

Two more official measurements will be taken during the game, which had been temporarily suspended because of a thunderstorm.
