last couple days, he says, an electrician spliced what's left of the broken cable and restored power. for now, it's very tenuous. uh you know whether it's going to last or not, we don't know. but for the time being, we actually do have power back a relief for the lighthouse keeper who has been living there during the pandemic, keeping the generators and navigation light up every night. no matter what. i was killing barca after eucalyptus trees for kindling. she started a go fund me that's raised more than $80,000 to help restore power to the lighthouse, but they're nowhere close to the roughly 200,000 they need. they seem insurmountable. but i just. i don't believe that that this community is going to let. anything happens, community businesses are stepping up. catahoula coffee is selling a special white house blend of coffee beans, tokens for free tacos at the restaurant down the street and merchandise with proceeds going to the lighthouse. it's not that we're
gonna set the world on fire between some small businesses in the air, but it's nice to create the awareness. the factory bar is doing the same and created a custom lighthouse cocktail for the fundraiser. one way or another. i think we're going to open up one way or another. we're going to get some power one way or another. there's a future for each brother light station. we don't quite know what it is, but i think that's where we're headed. emma goss, ktvu fox two news. boy we had a chilly start to the day, but things have warmed up just a little bit right. rosemary yes, i warmed up a little bit. ghaziabad very breezy out there. in fact, we have a wind advisory that begins this hour from portions of the bay area as we take a look at what's going on. how about tahoe this afternoon? because tahoe always a beautiful sight. there's a look. they're mostly clear skies over lake tahoe. the winds are light and tahoe and the temperatures are in the upper sixties. therefore today, all right, let's come back home. take a look at what's happening here because we don't really have the clouds or the fog to speak up. but we do have a

the nineties, and one of the things that we learned was that we had to take care of ourselves. and so we had to figure out what the needs of the community are and take. care of each other, so whether that was creating mutual aid funds for folks especially like our nightlife community, which was hit very hard, you know, for us as an organization last year, it really meant a lot of the organizations that normally support financially the organization we were saying, hey, we don't have a lot to offer you as far as sponsorship, but please continue to support us so that we can have another pride. um, so it was in that way. it was making sure that we're checking in on each other checking in on our seniors. you know, we were reminded that a lot of our lgbt seniors do not have the support system of a lot of others. so it was really a lot of checking in with each other, making sure that we can get folks to and who and pro, so it was really just about checking in on knowing what we as a community needed him in finding ways to provide that. what is your message to bay area community at large about how they can, uh celebrate and
support the lgbtq community during pride month, not just pride month, but all year long. i mean, there's so many ways, you know, there's so many of our organizations that were hit hard in the pandemic, and we as an organization, we felt it as an organization. but also we know that there are a lot of smaller nonprofits that are supported by pride. um that we give funds true throughout the year that unfortunately, at times we were weren't able to do that. so there are a lot of non profits a lot of our in our trends. nonprofits are health nonprofits are senior nonprofits. um definitely donating to a lot of them starting to support our our small businesses. we were originally going to have an expo two as a complementary to our pride movie night to put thf financial reasons in our big goal with that was to boost the economy. for lgbt small businesses. but that doesn't mean that our community members can't go out and support them. so we hope that they continue to do that and continue to define ways to support your comedian around this, like my background, says we're all in
