LOS ANGELES (AP) — At least 340 vehicles damaged by last week's massive flood on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles are available for pickup by their owners.

UCLA spokesman Tod Tamberg says the school has arranged to have insurance adjusters on site Tuesday until Thursday to help with damage assessments.

These are the last of nearly 1,000 cars that were parked in two structures inundated July 29 when a main pipe broke, spewing some 20 million gallons of water. The lower garage levels were submerged to the ceiling.

About 600 undamaged cars had already been towed out.

In addition to the two parking structures, water from the rupture flooded several other campus buildings, including Pauley Pavilion, the school's storied basketball arena.

Repairs on the pipe were completed Monday.
