Streets are closed and traffic is being rerouted in the heart of the Financial District this morning due to a random scaffolding that's hanging from the side of a highrise building.

Officer Albie Esparza tells they got a call at about 7 a.m. on reports of the dangling platform on the 300 block of Clay Street. The area has been secured and an engineer is reportedly on the scene trying to fix what is obviously a Friday the 13th issue.

"No one was on the scaffolding at the time, but it's still a dangerous situation," Esparza tells us. Battery Street is closed to southbound traffic as well as eastbound Clay Street all the way to Sansome. San Francisco Municipal Railway buses on the 1-California and 41-Union routes being diverted, according to Muni.

  • 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.'"
