SEATTLE (AP) - With shouts, cheers and fireworks, Seattle residents celebrated a dominant victory in the Super Bowl - the city's first major sports championship in more than 30 years.
Scores of people took to the streets in the city's Pioneer Square and Capitol Hill neighborhoods. Seattle police planned an increased presence throughout the city Sunday night. They sent a tweet on the department's widely followed Twitter account saying, ''Officers will be out and about citywide making sure everyone is celebrating safely.''
The Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8. The last time a major Seattle sports franchise won a championship was in 1979 when the Supersonics took the NBA title. The WNBA's Seattle Storm have won two championships, in 2004 and 2010.
Mayor Ed Murray says in a statement that a Seahawks victory parade would happen Wednesday.
