I have been saying this for years! The ones I get tests from are from a station in youngstown ohio and I'm near cleveland, weather moves from west to east and all are alerts and warnings are issued by Cleveland.
The tests are always from Youngstown, never Cleveland and many do not have any text and some last for 10 minutes taking out the TV's sound and part of the picture.
Glad someone else is having the same issue and maybe TWC will fix this horrible routing.
BTW, none of the geolocation data is correct anymore , they even hid it at whois... Mine is in Boston Heights which is even further from youngstown! ANd I'm 15 miles northeast of that
My TWC TV app on my Roku has been giving "Required Emergency Tests" every 4-5 minutes from all over the country. I live in NC, and I'm getting them from Alabama, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Florida, Tennessee....etc. Is there anyway to make it stop. It's now become unwatchable with the amount of them that are coming through....

I get these too. Drives me insane. In the rare event that the TV actually stays on without one of the various TWC error messages, these loud emergency alert tests are on every couple minutes all night long.
I wonder if the FCC is aware of this??
Contact your local national weather service office and get the primary eas broadcasters name from them. Then contact that broadcaster and have them contact the FCC. they have a lot more clout than you or me, I have contacted them numerous times and only gotten action maybe on half of them and I have an FCC license and not some customer complaining about sex and violence on tv, lol.
