Update 6 p.m.: BART trains are running on time. Go home before there is another mechanical breakdown.

Original Story 2:39 p.m.:BART trains are running late, and they are expected to be even later by the time you leave work.

The transit agency is reporting 10-to-15-minute delays on all trains between San Francisco and Oakland. Trains have been running at reduced speeds between the Civic Center in San Francisco and West Oakland, thanks to a power outage.

On Sunday, train service stopped in parts of the East Bay after BART cars derailed outside the Concord station around 9 a.m. The agency spent the entire day trying to remove the train cars and fix the problem in time for the Monday morning commute.

And they did. But then mechanical issues at the Embarcadero station stalled trains early Monday morning.

Check back for more details, and how the delays might keep you from getting home for dinner on time.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
