URGENT: National Weather Service advises Hurricane Harvey to hit landfall last Friday, not next Friday

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas—(TYDN) The National Weather Service late Monday issued an urgent weather advisory, announcing that one of the nation's strongest hurricanes would hit landfall last Friday. The NWS originally had warned that Hurricane Harvey's 130 MPH winds and rains was not expected to reach landfall until next Friday, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

The National Weather Service said a "calendaring snafu" was responsible for an error that caused it to belatedly announce the Category 4 storm after it had already rained several feet, flooded cities, caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage, and killed 5 people in Texas.

"We regret any inconvenience this calendaring snafu has caused," the National Weather Service said in an exclusive statement to TheYellowDailyNews. "If you are caught in the storm and able to swim, we urge you to do so."

President Donald Trump, in response, said he would soon visit the storm-ravaged state.

"I better not see any illegal aliens in any rescue shelter," the president told TheYellowDailyNews in an exclusive interview late Monday. "If I do, Texas will be in store for more stormy weather."

Trump pardons Charles Manson, says "both sides" to blame for white-extremist's convictions

WASHINGTON—(TYDN) President Donald Trump pardoned white-extremist Charles Manson, saying Saturday that "both sides" were at fault for the notorious mass-murderer's 1971 convictions in connection to the brutal killing of seven people, including actress Sharon Tate, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

Manson elated after release.
Manson espoused a theory in what is known as "Helter Skelter"—an impending race war, and thought the murders he ordered carried out by the so-called Manson Family would help bring that apocalyptic war to fruition.

In an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews at his new Trump Tower residence, Manson said his release from a California prison only confirms his deep-held secret belief that he would be pardoned someday by a sympathetic president. "I wanted Trump to beat Clinton so bad, as I knew it would probably be my last chance for a get-out-jail free card," the 82-year-old Manson said as he choked back tears from his swastika-tattooed face. "Finally, a US leader publicly supporting Helter Skelter."

Trump won wide praise and condemnation for his first presidential pardon following his assumption to the 45th presidency on Jan. 20. The Ku Klux Klan said it was planning to host rallies in several cities. The NAACP said the pardon was an abuse of power, an assertion that Trump tweeted amounted to "Fake News."

Speaking to TheYellowDailyNews in an exclusive Oval Office interview here, Trump said Los Angeles County jurors who convicted Manson five decades ago "didn't really understand both sides of the story, that a race war was coming, and that we might as well as get it the hell over with sooner rather than later."

"There's blame on both sides," Trump said.

Maker of solar eclipse eyeglasses issues recall after thousands go blind

LOS ANGELES—(TYDN) The producer of a popular pair of solar eclipse eyeglasses issued a recall following widespread reports that tens of thousands of its customers went blind watching Monday's solar eclipse, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

Shares of Eclipsyware Co. initially tumbled 25 percent on the New York Stock Exchange. But shares rebounded in after-hours trading when the company pinned blame on its customers. The Los Angeles-based eyewear company nevertheless apologized for the inconvenience to affected customers who purchased the $1.99 Eclipsyware Total Eclipse glasses.

Eclipsyware Chief Executive Shaun Seymore, in a conference call with investors, noted that Eclipsyware's 35,000-word terms of service cautioned that staring at the sun "may cause" blindness, and that the Eclipsyware Total Eclipse glasses were "costume" glasses meant to commemorate the first total solar eclipse in decades.

Product liability attorneys told TheYellowDailyNews that this language immunized the company from lawsuits. "Nowhere on the Eclipsyware Total Eclipse packaging does it say these are for staring at the sun," a well placed product-liability attorney with direct knowledge of the terms of service told TheYellowDailyNews on condition of anonymity. "In fact, on page 31 of the 75-page service agreement, the company clearly warns that the Eclipsyware Total Eclipse glasses are not meant to be used to stare at the sun."

Meantime, Seymore told TheYellowDailyNews in an exclusive interview that the company would give users who lost their eyesight a coupon for a 50 percent discount on their soon-to-be released costume eyewear for the blind.

"This is the least we can do for our valued customers," Seymore told TheYellowDailyNews. "We issued this recall to be responsible corporate citizens to prevent more customers from blinding themselves."

Daylight Pharma Pills Co., the maker of the only FDA drug approved to treat Non-24-Hour Sleep Wake Disorder, announced it would issue a limited supply of 25-percent off coupons for its $995 monthly treatment. Its patented formula helps regulate the internal body clocks of those who lost their eye site.

Shares of Daylight Pharma Pills surged in after-hours trading on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

Americans support North Korea missile attack on White House, poll shows

WASHINGTON—(TYDN) An overwhelming majority of Americans said they were deeply anxious that North Korea would not launch an ICBM missile at the White House, TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

At least 69 percent of US voters responding to a TYDN-CNN-ABC-Politico telephone survey said they were extremely nervous that North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, was bluffing when he claimed he had the technology to strike the District of Columbia.

However, the latest survey of 45,000 voters was a major boost to US President Donald Trump. Just last week, 75 percent of respondents said they hoped Pyongyang would follow through on its threats.

"This is a remarkable turn of events in only a week's time. There are thousands of fewer Americans today who want to see this launch go through," Dexter Margolian, the lead researcher on the survey, told TheYellowDailyNews in an exclusive interview. "We were really surprised by the numbers. We thought more Americans would want Pyongyang to succeed, for a change of pace in Washington if for no other reason."

President Trump, speaking to reporters here at the Rose Garden, blasted the Americans who sided with the Hermit kingdom.

"Fake citizens," Trump said.

War games

The survey did not ask respondents for their political affiliation. The poll had a margin of error of zero percentage points, the researchers said.

The poll comes a week before the US and South Korean militaries engage in their annual summer war games along the Korean penninsula—a move that is expected to spark even more rhetoric between Trump and Kim. North Korea's leader says the drills are a dress rehearsal for an invasion of the North.

The developments come a week after Pyongyang and Washington threatened to annihilate each other with nuclear weapons. In response, many Western schools instituted duck-and-cover drills reminiscent of the Cold War.
