Mistakenly deleted svn projects using rm -rf instead of svnadmin...

Yesterday I attempted to start with a fresh install of subversion and forgot that to properly delete svn you need to use svnadmin instead of rm -rf on the folder hierarchy. Now when I do a locate svn I still get the paths to the repositories as well as the conf, dav db, format, hooks, locks, and the README.txt. An ls -la of the directory where the folders were located does not show them being there. I'm a bit confused. Are the repositories deleted? I assumed that when I did a locate svn nothng would show up as he folders and files were deleted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
