UCLA under water after 10 million gallons explode from water main

LA water main breakA water main exploded near the University of California-Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon, flooding much of the campus, Sunset Boulevard and Pauley Pavilion.

The 93-year-old pipe exploded at roughly 3:30 p.m., sending a geyser some 20 feet into the air just as rush hour was getting underway, diverting traffic and creating major problems around campus. Although no injuries were reported, flood waters were shin-deep in places, with students boogie boarding around campus and sliding down wet railings.

"That is probably one of the most dangerous things you can do," Los Angeles Fire Department Capt. Jaime Moore told the Los Angeles Times. "For somebody to try and boogie board in this, it's just going to be an asphalt bath."

"People are standing in the water almost out of a sense of amusement," echoed fellow firefighter Brian Humphrey to KTLA.
