Update: Lt. Tyrone Forte tells us that someone called BART police at about 8:23 a.m. reporting there was a person armed with a weapon at the Embarcadero station. The cops halted all the trains while they searched the entire station as well as the trains.

They found nothing, and trains were moving again just before 9 a.m, albeit slowly.

Original story: We're getting word from BART that commuters should expect major delays this morning due to some sort of police activity at the Embarcadero.

According to BART, trains are delayed by about 15 minutes at Embarcadero in the SFO, Millbrae and East Bay directions. We've put in a call to the transit agency to get more details about what's happening and how much longer you'll be standing around the platform.

  • 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.'"
