It’s been going since about 3.30, and when i checked the KTLA live feed a few minutes ago, it was still gushing away. Must be tens of thousands of gallons so far. Just what Southern California needs with the current drought!
They’ve shut Sunset east of the 405, right at rush hour, so traffic around there must be an absolute clusterfuck right now.
WOW! So much water! I just came across it going through an MSN news feed. The flooding on campus and the flooded stadiums is really a sight. Kind of amazing, really. I’ve seen main breaks before, but apparently not the mother main!
My wife is a professor at UCLA so she got a text alert about it even though she’s out of town.
It’s bad. The water poured into the underground parking structure under the lacrosse field, so who know how many cars have been destroyed. And it flooded out all the athletic buildings in the heart of campus, the basketball court, the Wooden Center. Fortunately none of the academic buildings were flooded, but the damage has got to be in the millions of dollars.
