Twitter captures water main flood at UCLA

Westwood, Los Angeles -- After a 30" water main pipe broke on Sunset Blvd, water has flooded out the UCLA main campus. Initially confused by the quickly encroaching waters, many students stood by to take photos of the phenomenon, completely unaware that hundreds of thousands of gallons of water were headed their way.

Within less than an hour many UCLA buildings were taking on water, including Pauley Pavilion, Drake Track and Field Stadium, the George Kneller Center, the Athletic Hall of Fame and more.

All walkways and entrances leading to parking garages four and seven are currently flooded. Workers are currently trying to barricade the flood with sandbags as LADWP manages to stop the water flow.
