Westwood flooding: UCLA waterlogged vehicles waiting to be picked up

Owners of waterlogged vehicles from last week's massive flooding at UCLA were able to reclaim them on Tuesday.
Owners of waterlogged vehicles from last week's massive flooding at UCLA were able to reclaim them on Tuesday.

About 340 water-damaged vehicles that were parked on the bottom floors of UCLA parking structures 4 and 7 were relocated to parking lots next to Jackie Robinson Stadium, where owners can come to assess the damage.

Representatives of insurance companies and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power were expected to be on-hand to help with the claims process.

The university is helping students and staff deal with damage by offering a loan-assistance program. Those who need the loan must fill out an emergency loan survey first.

About 600 undamaged cars had already been towed to UCLA Lot 36. As of Monday afternoon, about 130 were still on the lot, according to the university. Owners of those unclaimed vehicles should call Parking Programs at (310) 206-3884.

The flooding was caused by a water-main break on Sunset Boulevard last Tuesday, which spewed about 20 million gallons of water onto nearby streets and the UCLA campus.

The LADWP has since replaced the ruptured pipes and Sunset Boulevard has reopened.
