  • BART trains are not stopping in El Cerrito del Norte this morning.

Update 8:28 a.m.: The El Cerrito Del Norte station is now open for normal service, however, there is still delays of up to 10 minutes systemwide .

Original Story 6:53 a.m.: BART trains are not stopping at the El Cerrito del Norte station and the Richmond Station is closed after an unidentified person was reportedly killed on the tracks early this morning.

BART has not released any information about the death at this time, however, CBS is reporting that the person was trapped under a train at the El Cerrito Del Norte Station.

The incident is affecting service in all directions, meaning there are major delays, according to BART. If you can't find another ride to work, a "very limited" bus bridge has been set up between Richmond-Del Norte-Plaza and North Berkeley. The Amtrak station at Richmond is still open, so that's an option. If your final destination is Del Norte or Richmond stations, go ahead and make other transportation plans.

Check back for updates.

  • 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.'"
