6:46 pm
does not assume liability for many valuables including jewelry. >> my heart dropped. >> reporter: candice figueroa packed her laptop in detroit and checked her bag. when her southwest airlines flight arrived in san jose, the bag was lighter. i'm like, where is my laptop? i asked my husband, did you grab it out, did you take it out. i said, i think somebody took it. >> reporter: candace couldn't locate her computer, but she did find frustration on page 29 of southwest's passenger contract. it also states it assumes no responsibility for valuables like computers. >> it was very frustrating. >> candice and erfan aren't alone. we wondered how many. it turns out the airlines don't disclose their record, but the tsa does. last year 3600 travelers told the tsa about missing items like electronics, jewelry and purses.
6:47 pm
nearly a third of those claims were approved or settled with tsa paying out 134,000 dollars. still those odds aren't great. where else can travelers turn for help. some credit card companies offer protection. look for it in your card member agreement. also check your homeowners or renter's policy. sometimes that coverage extends to luggage. travel insurance might help, too, but you need to read the fine print before buying. >> i wouldn't lose view or sight of my bag. >> if something is stolen from your luggage, you can file a claim with the airline, the tsa or both. with airlines, you need to file the claim right away, usually within about 24 hours. with the tsa you have a full two years to do so. after contacting southwest, it gave candace $350 in travel vouchers, pointing out this was a rare exception and more a gesture of good will.

6:49 pm
californians can't just conserve water, they have to manage it. experts say the solution is for cities and counties to store more of it underground. >> we have to drink lots of water right now, got to hydrate, jeff. it's warm outside. >> great advice for this upcoming weekend. that heat can catch up on you fast as we get a look at the micro climate weather forecast. a look outside. there's oracle arena, looking good. mostly clear skies after a high in oakland, 71 downtown. currently 67. as we trend through tonight, we'll drop to 60 degrees by 10:00 p.m. as we push ahead towards tomorrow morning's forecast across the bay area, 55 to start in the south bay and mostly clear sky. a little fog coming back to the peninsula and also for san francisco with 51. the north bay starts out good with a mix of sun and a few clouds and 53 degrees. on your micro climate forecast for friday, temperatures go up three to five degrees.

6:51 pm
is moving right on top of the bay area. that's what's going to produce the 90s to near 100 saturday and sunday inland. how do we escape the heat? two options for you. both of them at the coastline. one will be warmer than the other. let's get you into beach weather for this saturday and also sunday. santa druz you can see on saturday is going to tread up into the low 70s through 1:00, 2:00, 3:00. that's a warmer beach option. if you want something cooler, half moon bay may be your bet. 56 and fog in the morning on saturday and sunday in the afternoon with low to mid 60s. as we round out the forecast, san francisco and downtown up to the low 70s this weekend. 60s and 70s through next week. interior valleys, again, the heat-up. 89 for an average on friday. up to 97 on sunday. we stay with 90s through thursday of next week. janelle and jess, as we talked about earlier, hydrate this upcoming weekend. it will be important. >> good advice, thanks, jeff.
