LA JOLLA, Calif. (KGTV) - Crews worked to clear flooding on the campus of UC San Diego caused by a heavy storm moving through the county.

Campus police responded just after 6:30 a.m. and placed sandbags near the entrance of the Student Health and Wellness Center.

During that time, the water was about ankle deep to the officer’s boots. There were also reports of a parking garage flooded. A few cars had to be towed because they were flooded out.

In other storm-related problems around campus, crews had to deal with a rock slide that scattered debris all over Gilman and Scholars Drive. They had to close a some of the lanes for about an hour while crews worked to clear the debris.

Campus police told 10News that clogged drains may have been the cause for most of the flooding.

Staff members at the Student Health and Wellness Center say water got into the building. It is unknown if any damage was caused by the flooding.
