Constantly sends alerts; today I got 50. This app experience is broken! They put a banner in the app saying it's because "your local authority" is making changes which causes it to realert you, but it DOES NOT MATTER WHAT THE EXCUSE IS the impact is constant alerts -- so what if the areas affected changed? I only care about the areas I'm subscribed to, that's the point of subscribing, so if some other area is added to the alert I DO NOT NEED ANOTHER ALERT FOR THAT.

Hi Chris - We apologize for the inconvenience this issue has caused. We have found and fixed the bug that was causing these successive and expired alerts from the app. The underlying cause is complex, so we are still working on a permanent solution. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns fema-app@fema.dhs.gov.

Loved this app but recently noticed (in the last week or more) that I am not receiving push notifications. Currently under a severe thunderstorm watch and have not received anything from the app. Checked all notification settings in my phone and on the app. Uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Nothing. It is a bummer because this app helped me feel safe when I didn't have access to live TV and at night when I may not hear a tornado siren.

Hi Amy, an update: all the weather alerts on the FEMA App are working again. All the advisories, watches, and warnings you expect should have started appearing on your device again this week. Our apologies for the outage. You can email us at fema-app@fema.dhs.gov for more information.

The app started sending freeze alerts then freeze alert expired alerts then new freeze alerts. The original alerts expired sonIbget that notification. One after another. I tried to set it so it would stop the alerts until the morning. But still I received alerts for new freeze alert and more on the expired alerts. I finally went to apps and shut off notifications. Alerts, one after another, for expired alerts is crazy.

Toiréasa - Our apologies for the annoyance of the repeated freeze alerts. We have resolved the bug that both caused these expired alerts from the app and shut down the “silence alert” function. We are still working on a definitive solution to these issues, which will happen next year. If you have any questions or concerns - fema-app@fema.dhs.gov

What's new

- Bug fix to silent notifications settings page and Prepare slideshow category title
- Added disclaimer in the Alerts section about "duplicate" alerts
