BART officials are warning that this morning's commute will be a total nightmare. Equipment issues caused a brief power outage that has drastically slowed trains into San Francisco.

BART spokesman Jim Allison told reporters to expect delays up to 30 minutes on the Fremont-to-Richmond line, the Fremont-to-Daly City line, and the Dublin/Pleasanton-to-Daly City line.

"This is creating quite a backup, since this is a heavily trafficked area of our system, three of our five lines go through that particular section of track," Allison said.

The equipment problems were unrelated to the 3.6 earthquake in the East Bay early this morning, which brought BART and Muni trains to a halt.

  • 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.'"
