A broken water main in the Hollywood area Wednesday led to flooding and prompted closure of a freeway offramp in the area.

The break was reported about 3 a.m. near the Highland Avenue offramp from the northbound Hollywood (101) Freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The offramp was closed while crews worked to handle the problem, a closure that was continuing several hours afterward, the CHP reported.

Some vehicles were submerged, and firefighters were sent to assist people who were stranded by the water, which was about 4 feet deep in areas, according to reports from the scene.
