Yes, another tree has taken out the Riverside line, this time by having the temerity to fall on the overhead wires near Longwood, sparking a brush fire. Massive bustitution and angst result.
Apparently not wanting to be left out, the C line got itself shut as well when an out-of-service trolley derailed at St. Mary's, Channel 7 tweets. More massive bustitution and angst result.
Some riders managed to get caught in both messes. Phil R. tweets:
