#Hellastorm, #rainpocalypse, #biblicalrain: take your pick of media nickname for this real big rainstorm you're seeing right now. But whatever you want to call this thing, it claimed two BART stations, at both Montgomery and San Bruno.
Stn closure at MONT due to a power outage. Trains are running through and not stopping. Pls use EMBR and POWLns.— SFBARTalert (@SFBARTalert) December 11, 2014
San Bruno station reopened fairly quickly:
Stn closure at SBRN due to flooding. Pls use sam trans ecr north bound to SSAN stn.— SFBARTalert (@SFBARTalert) December 11, 2014
BART has recovered from earlier flooding at SBRN stn and has re-opened. All trains will stop at SBRN stn.— SFBARTalert (@SFBARTalert) December 11, 2014
But it took Montgomery Station until nearly 1 p.m. to reopen. And by reopen, we just mean for trains, as escalators and elevators are still offline. Sorry about that.

In case you were planning to take a cable car today, which wasn't a good idea to begin with, now you can't, because those are closed. Instead there are shuttle busses.
SF Bay Ferry service has been canceled due to the storm, and as of 8:45, Golden Gate Ferry service was operating as usual. Check here for updates on that.
For buses, there are several reroutes happening:

And, on the sunny side, don't worry about parking tickets:
