LOS ANGELES – A massive watermain break has sent up to 100,000 gallons of water rushing into the University of Southern California Campus in LA.
Water shoots into the air after a major water main break, flooding parts of the UCLA campus. Bits of debris, including asphalt, were also spewing out of the break.
The damage started on Tuesday afternoon at about 3:30PM local time near the campus, prompting an evacuation of students and faculty.
Local television images showed students wading through knee-deep water — some are getting around by boogie board.
Firefighters were warn that the water is extremely dangerous. L.A.’s famed Sunset Boulevard was closed, as fire and police officials scrambled to get the break under control.
The Los Angeles Police Department said there were no immediate reports of injuries from the flooding.
The water was reported to be one-to-two feet high as it gushes down the road.
