LOS ANGELES (AP) - Officials at the University of California, Los Angeles are offering help to employees and students affected by flooding that followed a water main break.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/VtS5wC ) that the school is making interest-free loans of up to $5,000 available to about 100 employees who had parked into two campus lots inundated during the July 29 incident.

Corrosion and structural problems caused a pipe to burst, and about 20 million gallons of water submerged hundreds of cars and flooded a landmark athletic arena.

In addition to the loans, school officials have emailed 260 vehicle owners, many of them students, to say that nearly $56,000 will be available from a UCLA Foundation emergency relief fund.
