responding to call after call of people trapped by the churning pacific ocean. >> the tide will sneak up on you. >> reporter: just before 4:00, calls came in for two men caught in rip currents. by the time rescue crews arrived, the ocean had spit one swimmer back to shore not breathing and the second believed to be his father was fished out a short time later. >> we immediately started cpr. >> reporter: both were taken to san francisco hospital. less than 30 minutes after those rescues, more distress calls. this time concern about four surfers who seemed to be stranded. chopper 5 was inlisted to help rescue boats locate the surfers and make sure they were okay. hours later, afternoon 9:00 p.m., rescue crews called lewis alcorn off seal rock after he and his friend sandy french got separated. >> i got to the car. he had the key. i was waits here for about 25 minutes and it started to get

fine. >> reporter: the owner of demolition contractor zlp corporation says he hears stories like robert's all the time. >> reporter: these pools take a lot of water and a lot of energy to run and people don't want to deal with that. >> reporter: thanks to the drought, demolitions like this one are happening all over the east bay and south bay. this company did 35 demolitions back in 2010. this year, they are on track to do more than 100. >> they actually kind of feel bad for having this much water in their backyard when the rest of the state is so dry. >> reporter: we checked the numbers and found out in dublin, pool demolitions have already doubled in 2014 over last year. and in walnut creek, the number of pool demolitions jumped more than 70% since 2011 and fewer people are building new pools. harsh new drought conditions prevent refilling new swimming pools or spas. robert already has plans for a new drought friendly backyard

of the world. facebook hopes to start testing the drones in the u.s. next year. if you look up in the sky now, you may notice a little rain. >> yeah, it is raining out there and it is earlier than we thought. in some cases, it is a little heavier than we thought. we will take as much rain as mother nature offers and she is offering. didn't do it in january, but now that it is september, at the end of our dry season, look at this. we have rainfall coming through. it is so easy to pick out where the front is. you can see the thin up and down of heavy rainfall now moving on shore up toward fort bragg. cloverdale, santa rosa, you are up next. already light to moderate rain showers in spotty locations around vallejo, oakland, and san francisco. so the rain certainly is on its way. have you felt the stickiness outside? one of the most humid days we have felt for a long time with lows only in the low 60s . so
we have a two-part story here. the first part is the front moving through. but we have this trailing area of low pressure. it is pretty strong. that is coming here too. so we get the fronted night. we get rainfall, the best window of opportunity between midnight and lunchtime tomorrow. that is the cold front, the rain that will impact your drive to work. so get up about ten minutes early. then, we actually have the low pressure area. that will come through. that is a forecast change over the past 24 hours. we thought it would stay to the north. it is coming right over the top of us. the cold unstable air will keep the shower chance around all the way until friday evening. it is not going to pour the next two days but there is a chance of showers lasting all the way until your weekend begins. i think this particular computer model is overshooting the rainfall totals. i think a quarter of an inch is a fair request and one mother nature will grant in hayward and concord and napa. that is double what we had last week. it is what we will have overnight tonight through tomorrow and a couple of showers on friday. so the showers are moving south right now. most of the rain is going to fall by lunchtime tomorrow.
but the chance of showers extends all the way until friday evening. highs tomorrow, cloudy, cooler, breezy, only in the mid 70s in san jose. sunnyvale, 73. we will not hit 80 inland. far from it. rain in san francisco tomorrow. 68. petaluma, 72. showery in cloverdale. rain chances friday evening done. back to the 80s inland, and next week, no additional rainmakers but it is raining now and will rain on and off the next two days. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,
