Companies were called on July 29, 2014 to 10630 Sunset Boulevard in Westwood – just north of UCLA, where firefighters discovered as much as 75,000 gallons of water per minute flowing through ruptured asphalt in the center of the street. Firefighters secured the adjacent parking structure elevators and descended flooded stairwells to supervise the self-evacuation of several would-be motorists. Firefighters rescued five persons who were stranded by rising water. Additional firefighters joined UCLA staff in dewatering Pauley Pavilion and the John Wooden Center, which were among the six campus buildings most significantly impacted by the flood.
