Wasn't it perfectly sunny out yesterday? - SCREEN-GRAB/ABC NEWS

Last week it was BART collisions and Bay Bridge closures. Today, it's a fallen tree that's probably going to delay some folks on their way to work -- or play.

According to press reports, a tree fell early this morning near the 1800 block of Lombard Street, blocking all westbound traffic.

No word on why the tree fell, but everyone except a parked car escaped injury.

As of this morning, city crews were working to remove the tree. Until then, you might want to take the Ferry if you were planning a trip across the Golden Gate Bridge.

  • 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.'"
