Haunting Drone Footage Of Empty San Francisco Looks Like An Apocalypse Movie

The empty city looks eerie amid shelter-in-place orders aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus.

San Francisco is practically empty ― and it’s looking a little like the set of an apocalyptic movie as people stay inside to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Six counties in the San Francisco Bay Area shut down nearly everything, save for essential services, to comply with a shelter-in-place order that took effect on March 17. 

And residents of the City by the Bay seem to be taking those orders to heart.

Drone footage, both above and below, shows a mostly empty city, punctuated only by an occasional pedestrian or vehicle.
