I moved across the country a few months back. I am getting the national service weather alerts for my old location on the east coast when I live in the west coast. I am not even in the same time zone, let alone we moved to get out of winter weather. I am getting weather alerts for winter storm warnings for our old location at 3 am! I would like warnings for the area we are now in.

Also, isn't it supposed to change locations as you travel? We will be driving back in a few months to take care of a few things and would like to receive weather warnings enroute since we will be travelling through tornado alley.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Check your location settings, including you calendar and time zone settings. You may need a reset.

Found the issue. It is the Weather Channel App not the National Weather Service emergency alert system. I was in contact with the NOAA people and we figured it out. Found a contact us link.

I have the Weather Channel app but I never set it to receive notifications. Apparently, it must be a default because I had never done anything with settings. Never clicked it on that app. But it was set for sending notifications. I turned it off.
