SFMTA sent this service alert a few minutes ago:

As of 12:54 p.m., regular service on the following Muni bus routes has been affected due to an SFPD evacuation caused by a gas leak in the vicinity of 18th and Castro streets. Also, Muni Metro service both inbound and outbound is not stopping at Castro Station as a precaution requested by the SFPD.

24 Divisadero
33 Stanyan
35 Eureka

Service on these routes must reroute around the area until the evacuation has been cleared.

Muni Metro customers are advised to use Church Street station instead of Castro at this time.

PG&E has been called to the scene.

One comment

  • Some gas utilities will offer this inspection service, if not they can offer a list of trusted suppliers. It is also important to ensure that any ventilation is maintained. This would have been established when installed, but any changes will affect the appliances operation. Keep watch over your appliances operation. Signs of problems can be soot buildup around burners or a change in the flames color from blue to yellow.
