UCLA Will Replace Pauley Floor, Still Look To Play There In Fall


Almost 400 cars have been pulled from the parking structures in and around the UCLA athletics facilities, now that 48 hours have passed since the massive water main break on Sunset Boulevard that flooded Pauley Pavilion, the Drake track stadium, the intramural fields, twp below-ground parking decks, and two other buildings in the area.

The HQ thinks that's all of the buildings...

UCLA AD Dan Guerrero has now said publicly that the Pauley Pavilion floor will be replaced- the cost to have it installed during the nine-figure renovation two years ago was $500,000. He doesn't think that the university will be footing the bill.

Here's the look of the evacuation from campus

Helfand and Cook of the LA Times newspaper were front and center at the use of squeegies and vacuum cleaners at Pauley where the damage was quantified:

The water on the Pauley floor crested at about eight inches, campus officials estimated, but by Tuesday night only about an inch remained.

Guerrero said the damage was limited because of the quick response by workers.
