Turning off the Verizon Severe Alerts

How do I turn off the Severe Alerts received from Verizon? The one at 6:12 Am yesterday morning was the straw that broke the camel's back, not to mention the 3 that have been received today. This is a telephone, if I want severe alerts I'll turn on the TV or Radio!

Go to messages, settings, and then emergency alerts.

Amen. I made no changes to anything and I am getting three to four super loud severe weather alert tones a day. What a pain.

Okay just noticed after a reset that I now have no emergency alerts in text settings. What? Doesn't really matter to me but Verizon doesn't even list this phone as wea capable so I'm wondering how they got there and why aren't they there now? I've got the emergency alert setting but when I click that there is nothing there. Oh well never received the alerts anyway.
