We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don't have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don't have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don't know who's actually building it.

Rest assured knowing your modified shipping container will be built to the highest quality standards. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors check every step of the fabrication process to ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications.

A heat advisory is in effect for parts of San Diego County until 8 p.m. Tuesday, according to reports from the National Weather Service.

High temperatures of 95 to 102 are forecast for San Diego County valleys, El Cajon, Escondido, San Marcos, La Mesa, Santee and Poway.

Hot cars are always a concern when the temperatures crank up. Meteorologist Dagmar Midcap says when it's 90 degrees outside it only takes the inside of a car with the windows rolled up 10 minutes to reach 109 degrees. After 20 minutes, it''ll be around 120 degrees, and after 30 minutes, it could be as hot as 129 degrees. Wait an hour and you could see temps in your car climb all the way to 133 degrees, so be mindful of children or animals being left in your vehicle -- look before you lock, Midcap says.

Residents of East County should also be aware that afternoon thunderstorms are possible for the mountains both on Monday and Tuesday, according to NBC 7's Sheena Parveen.

It is expected to be slightly cooler on Tuesday and Wednesday.

An isolated thunderstorm on Sunday over southeastern San Diego County produced 17 cloud-to-ground lightning strikes and 94 in-cloud flashes in about 30 minutes from 7 to 8 p.m.

Hot weather can cause heat illnesses. The county of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency recommends the following tips to keep cool and beat the heat:

If you need to escape the heat, San Diego County has a Cool Zone program in place. The board of supervisors launched the program out of concern for seniors, persons with disabilities and those with health concerns that could be complicated by the effects of heat.

To find a cool zone area near you, check out this interactive map.

The county, in partnership with SDG&E, provides free electric fans to those who are 60 years of age and older, or are disabled or living on a limited income. To be eligible, a resident must not have access to air-conditioning at their residence. To learn more about the Cool Zones Fan Program or to request a fan, please call 2-1-1.

If you or someone you know is unable to get to a cool zone location and need transportation assistance, you can call 2-1-1 to be connected to a transportation or rideshare service at no cost.

Donations surge for pro-life and pro-choice groups

Since the landmark Roe v. Wade reversal last Friday, Planned Parenthood and a local maternity home with two locations say they have seen a steady stream of support.

SAN DIEGO — Organizers say many people are feeling urged to do something in response to the Supreme Court decision, and giving back is one way.

"Typically, we see smaller but many more donations, so people are really giving that $50 or $100 because they just want to do something, they feel like they have to try,” said Darrah Johnson, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest.

Since Friday's historic Supreme Court reversal of Roe v Wade, Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest has seen a significant jump in donations directly to its website.

CEO Darrah Johnson says financial help is needed more now than ever.

"Even though we have seen a surge of support over the last couple days, we know that will probably trickle off at some point, but we really appreciate all of the outpouring right now, but yes, it has been a significant increase,” Johnson said.

On the national level, Planned Parenthood has seen celebrity donors step up, including Grammy Award winning singer Lizzo with concert promoter Live Nation pledging $1 million to the organization.

What does the money go to?

"Support the extra burden on our organization having to increase access of staff, training, resources, logistics, just making sure that we are there to care for people who need us,” Johnson said.

The Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest serves Riverside, Imperial and San Diego Counties, and already staff has seen a spike in abortion services appointments.

Johnson says throughout the region, over 120 patients from Arizona booked their appointments as a Friday morning.

And not just from neighboring states, Johnson says, women from across the country have also booked appointments, and they're still tallying numbers from Monday and Tuesday.

"The pregnancy help movement is here to support every single person involved in an unintended or crisis pregnancy,” Beckie Perez said.

Beckie Perez, the CEO and executive director of the 29-Eleven Maternity home, has also seen support shoot up since last Friday.

The organization, which is named after the Bible verse Jeremiah 29:11, has two locations in El Cajon, where pregnant women in crisis can live, work, go to school and receive support services.

Perez, who runs the non-profit with her husband, says volunteer calls, money and interest overall have increased.

"We’ve been here since before Roe versus Wade, during and after walking alongside women in difficult circumstances, and now, more than ever we are all ready to step up and help the women, who are going to be affected by this," Perez said.
