Advertisements OK for the first time ever I got an "Emergency alert message" on my Series 3 tonight. In fact, I got about eight of them. They kept interrupting the recorded program I was watching and you can't do anything for a minute or two until it's over. I am all for having important emergency alerts pop up, but eight within an hour or so is overkill. OK, there is bad weather, I saw it the first time, and the second, and the third, etc.
