Muni cable car line blocked by fallen tree branch 

UPDATE: The fallen tree at Union and Hyde streets that blocked the Powell-Hyde cable car line in both directions has been removed, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency officials said.

Early post: Part of a tree has fallen on the Muni cable car tracks at Union and Hyde Streets, blocking cable car and vehicle traffic, according to a witness at the scene.

John Lee, a manager at Swensen's Ice Cream at 1999 Hyde St., said part of a tree fell on the tracks around noon, and more branches fell a short time later.

City workers are at the scene but they appear to be waiting for equipment to arrive, and police have closed off the block to traffic, Lee said.

A San Francisco Municipal Railway spokesman was not immediately available to provide details.
