This may look like "Atlantis College" or "Poseidon University." But it's actually U-C-L-A, after a massive water main break sent 8-to-10-million gallons of water gushing through parts of Los Angeles. Some students had some fun with it, although fire officials said playing around in the water is not safe. Just before rush hour Tuesday, the 93-year-old water main burst under the world-famous Sunset Boulevard. The U-C-L-A campus, on the city's west side, suffered much of the damage. The flooding covered the court of Pauley Pavilion, home to the Bruins' basketball. volleyball and women's gymnastics teams. But U-C-L-A academic and residence halls were not affected, the university said, and classes will continue today.
