UPDATE: BART recovering after systemwide delays due to equipment problem

UPDATE 10:05 A.M.:

BART was recovering from systemwide delays Tuesday morning caused by an earlier equipment problem on a train in the Transbay Tube.

At about 9 a.m., a San Francisco-bound train experienced a propulsion problem while in the tube, causing it to come to a stop, according to BART spokesperson Alicia Trost.

The train’s operator then put the train under automatic control, allowing it to slowly move toward the Embarcadero station, where technicians were standing by, Trost said.

At the same time, a medical emergency aboard an East Bay-bound train occurred as the train was arriving at the Embarcadero station.

The two incidents combined contributed to delays of 10 minutes or more systemwide, according to Trost.

Both incidents have since been resolved and trains in both directions were now in recovery mode and service was expected to return to normal.

On Sunday, California bore the brunt of what meteorologists referred to as a bomb cyclone and an atmospheric river, a convergence of storms that brought more than half a foot of rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, concerns about flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
