An hour-long power outage at the San Francisco International Airport BART station has created a wave of delays across the entire transit system.

The power outage happened just before 4 p.m., forcing operators to run the trains manually, which caused significant delays for the afternoon commute, according to BART.

As of 4:50 p.m., PG&E had restored power at the SFO station, however, if you're trying to make your way home now, you can expect some pretty long delays. "We're in recovery mode -- it will take some time to get the delays taken care of," a BART spokeswoman said.

No word on when things will be back to normal so you might want to head to the gym or maybe a pub to kill time.
