Update 7:30 a.m.: BART service just resumed, but expect nasty delays all morning.

Original story 7 a.m.: BART trains aren't just late this morning -- they're not running.

And, no, there's not a strike.

According to the transit agency, trains came to a halt this morning due to some technical issues. BART is advising everyone to find other ways to work until the problem is fixed.

"BART is experiencing major systemwide delays because of a technical problem. It began shortly after midnight and affected 19 trains with about 500 to 1000 passengers on board," Jim Allison, BART spokesman, said around 2 a.m., as the last of the evening's passenger service was ending. There has been no service this morning from the usual time around 4 a.m. when it would have begun.

"We're not going to have service until further notice so we are advising our customers to seek alternate transportation at this time," Allison 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.'"
