San Francisco Municipal Railway's Powell Street cable car line is out of commission today until further notice, a Muni spokesman said.

Officials discovered at about 7:40 a.m. that unexpected repairs needed to be made on one of the cables, agency spokesman Paul Rose said.

It was unclear when the repairs would be finished, but the agency is running shuttle buses until the cable cars are back in action, Rose said.

"Our crews are out there trying to make the repairs as soon as possible," he said.
