An hour-long power outage at the San Francisco International Airport BART station has created a wave of delays across the entire transit system.

The power outage happened just before 4 p.m., forcing operators to run the trains manually, which caused significant delays for the afternoon commute, according to BART.

As of 4:50 p.m., PG&E had restored power at the SFO station, however, if you're trying to make your way home now, you can expect some pretty long delays. "We're in recovery mode -- it will take some time to get the delays taken care of," a BART spokeswoman said.

No word on when things will be back to normal so you might want to head to the gym or maybe a pub to kill time.

  • 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.'"
