Disable or Change Weather Alerts

I'm in Vancouver, but whenever there's a severe weather warning in Quebec, I get notified, sometimes multiple times in an hour. I've got location on to approximate itself based on WiFi location, but that doesn't appear to work. 

 

Does anyone know how I can stop these alerts, or change them to be a bit more regional-specific?

Hi @ulrichd 

 

We're working through a bug where the Emergency Alert System wasn't registering location appropriately. Obviously you don't want alerts that are in a different part of the country - so this should be resolved shortly. There is no option to disable the Emergency Alert System - this is a mandatory requirement to provide as part of the TV license from the CRTC.

What app is generating the notifications?

It just overlays a red box and angry sound whenever I'm watching TV.

Which phone do you have?

Sorry my question is N/A, I just noticed this thread is in the Pik section not the Mobility section.
