89670 full

All vehicles have been removed from UCLA parking structures, where nearly 1,000 were stranded — many of them completely submerged — when a water main broke nearby and flooded the campus and surrounding streets.

The water has been completely drained from parking structures 4 and 7, and about 340 cars with varying degrees of water damage were towed to a nearby lot for retrieval by the owners, UCLA announced early Tuesday.

The water-damaged vehicles can be claimed from Jackie Robinson Stadium at 100 Constitution Avenue between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Tuesday or 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. the rest of the week.

Starting late last week, about 600 undamaged vehicles were towed to Lot 36, and by Monday afternoon, more than 500 of them had been claimed, according to UCLA. The university posted photos of those vehicles online.
