Muni is warning some commuters to find another route home tonight after a car pulled down the overhead wires, forcing three lines to go out of service.

According to Paul Rose, spokesman for Muni, the K, L, and M lines between West Portal and the Church Street station are currently out of service. Passengers have the option of being bussed between the two stations, with stops in between.

"If you have an alternate route of transportation to get home tonight, that would be something to consider," Rose said.

The good news is that the J and the N lines are running on normal schedules, Rose said.

The overhead wires near Church Street fell at about 1:30 p.m., causing trains to come to a halt. Rose said crews are working to repair the damage, which will last well into the evening commute.

"We will just have to see what the damage is," Rose said.

  • 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.'"
