Muni and San Francisco Depart of Water and Power crews were at the scene to shut down the power on the lines before they start to release the tension so they can begin to cut the tree.

Authorities told KCBS that streets will be closed to traffic for several hours and there will be no Muni service on the closed streets. The 41,45 and 8X Lines are affected.

UPDATE 8:04 a.m.: The SFMTA told KCBS that the lines should be back in operation at around 9 a.m.
