>> it is definitely a transitional time for first friday. >> reporter: despite how popular the festival is, donations are down. >> it has definitely always operated on a shoe string budget. >> reporter: up to 20,000 people come to first friday every month. you would think their donations alone would be enough to keep the festival afloat. but we found out many people just aren't donating. tonight, volunteers were out as they are every month trying to drum up dollars with mixed results. >> so you didn't donate? >> no. >> we didn't know. >> i donate 5d dollars. >> i saw a couple of people drop pennys in baskets. >> reporter: this vendor told us first friday has deinvolved into chaos since a key event coordinator left. >> i feel it is lacking the organizational structure it needs to survive. >> reporter: but the organizers insist first friday is part of

downs. you feel cold, then you feel fine, your shoulder hurts. you might get cramps in your legs. i'm definitely thinking about how far i have come. >> reporter: but there are other obstacles like the weather and great white sharks like this one that stopped simon dominguez. after jumping into what is a giant bowl of shark soup kim says. >> this is their living room. this is their habitat. i'm a guest passing through. >> reporter: as for the rules of the water, kim only has one. don't look up. >> i will try not to look for the bridge. [ laughter ] you know. it is very tempting to kind of look up and see where you are. but for me, i'll know when i'm done when i pass underneath the golden gate bridge. >> reporter: now, kim's rule might be don't look up, but there are other rules. she is not allowed to touch her guide boat at all. they send her food to her every
30 minutes when she has to stop and refuel via a string. andria borba, kpix5. tonight, a powerful typhoon has made lawful in taiwan. this is the storm from the international space station. >> reporter: the wind is really whipping here as this typhoon batters taiwan. the streets are mostly empty. we are hearing sirens from emergency vehicles. people are encouraged to stay indoors as we start to feel 60 man wind gusts from the outer bands of this storm. >> it is already creating huge waves. just look at this. four people have died including tragically, a mother and daughter who were swept out to sea. some areas may get more rain this weekend than san francisco has had in the past two years. right now, at least 2 million households are without electricity.
mother nature put on quite a show here last night. all over the bay area in fact. check out this scene in san jose. the national weather service says lightning struck 978 times. monterrey county all the way through to the east bay. two teenagers got hit by lightning in southern california last night. >> doctors say a romantic gesture probably saved their lives. crystal cruz with the striking story. >> it was more of a shove, you know? and it felt kind of like i was getting hit over the head with metal. >> reporter: the two were walking along a tree lined street in claire month when a doctor suspected they were hit by lightning. >> we gave each other the most terrified look you could possibly imagine. it was definitely weird. like it was an earthquake. >> reporter: the teenagers say a passer by stopped to say he saw the lightning bolt hit them. the teens' doctor says their
lives were probably spared because of something they were doing while walking down the street. >> and these two were lucky they were holding hands. it helped to defuse that electrical current that ran through their bodies. >> reporter: dr. ramos thinks it hit dylan's head and exited through lexi's foot. this will probably have long lasting effects on the couple who are doing just fine. lucky in life, lucky in love. >> they are now walking to buy a lottery ticket. [ laughter ] >> after that event, that would be a wise next move. things so much calmer around here. it is calm, it is clear, it is beautiful. your lows around 60 degrees. there is nothing on the radar, nor will there be the next seven days. when you get up tomorrow
morning, 60. so much going on, the san jose jazz summer fest began today. lasted through sunday, downtown, gorgeous, sunny, warm, but not hot. 82 degrees for a high. in the stern grove festival. another festival going on. 2:00 sunday, 65 degrees. so where is that low that gave us all the thunder and the lightning and some rainfall yesterday? must have been a date somewhere in utah. it is moving about 30 or 40 miles an hour away from us allowing something new to move in which is a different area of low pressure up in the pacific northwest off its coastline. that will bring in the on shore flow. now the ocean is running warm. realtively speaking, it is a cool flow. we get the sunshine, but not the heat. we will stay in the 80s away from the water. this gives us more of a southerly flow. cooler, cloudier toward the middle of next week. but the overall theme is beautiful weather to get outside. hope you enjoy it.
low clouds back late tore night. a dry seasonal gorgeous weekend. that other low next week will drop the temperature a bit. highs tomorrow, san francisco, you hit 70. san jose, you hit 82. fremont, redwood city, san mateo, all around, 80. low 80s , danville. mid 80s pittsburgh. gorgeous day in sausalito. couple of degrees warmer sunday. gorgeous weather through next week. no rainfall which we need. this is just not the time of year to end the drought. mid 80s away from the water. gorgeous weekend ahead. >> can't wait. >> looking good. coming up, verizon announces big changes. why they could cost you a fortune.
>> if you have verizon, your next phone could cost a lot more. verizon is giving discounts when you sign two year agreements. instead, you have to guy phone at full price or pay a monthly fee. plans will be month to month at a slight discount from old prices. current customers can keep their existing contracts. tonight, we know who stephen colbert's first guest will be. >> it will be george clooney will be my first ever guest on september 8. could one of you let him know? [ laughter ] the marquee at the ed sullivan theater bears his name. it has been empty since david
letterman east last show in may. coming up, the latest on aldon smith and the giants went aldon smith and the giants went all out in chicago and hope t now, here's the sequel... ...with portobello mushrooms. boom. hang on, i don't want anyone to trip... ok. oh yeah. that's jack's new portobello mushroom buttery jack, the sequel to the classic and bacon & swiss, topped with the same melted garlic herb butter, plus portobello mushrooms and grilled onions.
>> by now, you have heard about the niners letting aldon smith go. he was arrested by dui, hit and run, and vandalism. he was one of the best pass rusher ins the nfl with 44 career sacks in 50 games. but off the field is where he fell short with suspensions and missed games. it's a big blow on the team and more so for smith. the 49ers now have another probowler to replace on defense. aaron lynch who had six sacks last year is one of the leading candidates along with eli harold. now to baseball. ryan vogelsong making his first start since july 11. matt duffy with an amazing grab. he gets this diving grab and saved a run. that is amazing and definitely fun to watch.
in the fifth; the cubs blew this one wide open. including this double to left. the cubs win it by a count to 7- 3. as now. abby burns throwing out the first pitch. very nice to see that. oakland up 1-0 against the astros in the third when danny valenci took one deep. now the bottom of the 9th inning, the as are up 3-1. all sonny gray has to do is get the out and he does it right there. his 12th win of the season. as go onto win it by the count to 3-1. round two of the bridge stone ini have stational. now, no stop. check this shot out. a little chip shot. fyorik has a four-shot lead. that's sports! by the way. >> good. >> oh, very interesting. >> getting more interesting by the day. we'll be right back. female announcer: you're on the right track to save big
