BART Stations Close Due to Power Outage, 70,000 Without Power (Update)

Posted By on Thu, Dec 11, 2014 at 7:42 AM

Update 12 p.m.: San Bruno station is back open, Montgomery Station is still closed. 

Update: 9:30 a.m.: PGE spokesman Nick Stimmel tells us that more than 70,000 customers are without power in the Financial District and beyond due to a substation outage in the Civic Center area. "We're working to find out the cause and to restore power as quickly as possible," he tells us. 

Update 8:22 a.m.: BART just closed the San Bruno station due to flooding. BART is advising riders to use Sam Trans ECR Northbound to the South San Francisco Station.

Also, there's crazy flooding across the city so be careful. 

Well, we knew this was coming.

BART just announced that it has closed Montgomery Street station, thanks to a power outage caused by this torrential downpour. 

Trains are running through the station but not stopping. BART is advising commuters to use Powell or Embarcadero Stations. Of course, don't expect things to be running smoothy at those stations, either. BART is reporting systemwide delays "due to weather conditions." 

"BART trains are traveling at reduced speeds. Expect delays," the transit agency said in a statement. 

We're hearing things are not any better on the roads. The CHP is reporting high winds, falling trees and flooding along the bridges.

Stay tuned and dry.

  • 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.'"
