A broken water main is flooding the streets near UCLA, closing down parts of Sunset Blvd. and possibly trapping some people in their cars.The break began next to Marymount High School, but the gushing water, as deep as one-to-two feet, spread to UCLA’s campus. Sunset Blvd. has been closed from Marymount Pl. to Westwood Plaza, CBS reports. Bits of debris are also being carried by the water.

Two victims may also be trapped in their cars, stuck in the water, CBS says.
