Cordoned off with Police crime tape.
Homeless dude bit some chick's dog that was barking at him. She freaked out and got her boyfriend who pulled a knife on him. The homeless guy had a hatchet and they went at it. Not sure if the homeless guy made it.
they are setting up for Fleet Week. It is just like the govt. to close a parking lot, at the beach, on the hottest day of the year.
@eatnectar's explanation was way cooler. :(
Probably blacktop pee fumes caused someone to dial 911
BTW, this is happening tomorrow:
Since 2010 San Francisco Fleet Week has been the venue for Bay Area First Responders and the U.S. Military to meet, train together and discuss the latest lessons learned from recent Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response operations and to develop processes and relationships between Federal, State and Local agencies.
As part of 2012 Fleet Week activities, the San Francisco Fleet Week Association and the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management along with the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps team in action as a Navy Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) operating from the USS Makin Island (LHD 8) and Marines from the 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade deliver emergency supplies to Ocean Beach on October 3. This event is part of a multi-agency medical exercise.
The Navy LCAC is an amphibious military vehicle that provides a high speed, over-the-horizon transport of cargo, vehicles, and personnel from Navy ships at sea to beaches and other landing sites. The Navy and Marine Corps used the LCAC to deliver equipment and supplies to Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina, to deliver fire suppression apparatus to Catalina Island, and to support disaster relief missions around the world.
Following a major disaster in San Francisco that makes roads and bridges impassible, Navy LCACs and other amphibious vehicles and aircraft could deliver critical personnel, supplies, and equipment from Navy ships at sea. This exercise will demonstrate the humanitarian assistance and disaster relief capabilities of the Navy and Marine Corps team to deploy the LCAC to deliver emergency supplies, in this case to a Marine Corps Shock Trauma Platoon (STP). The STP, which will also be demonstrated at Ocean Beach, has the unique capability to establish a mobile surgery center within hours of a major disaster to provide medical attention to those in need.

"Marines from the 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade deliver emergency supplies to Ocean Beach on October 3."
Wow! We don't know what to say. So flattered you'd think of us, what with Afghanistan and everything keeping you busy.
Just in case you're wondering what to bring, here's a Stoke Report Shopping List:

Hovercraft won't land if the waves are bigger than 6ft.
Wow, a military exercise in a major metropolitan city? Prepping for something?? Oh right, humanitarian aid. Keep the AR's under wraps boys.
