The Emergency Alert System

I've noticed tonight that they're doing something differently with the Emergency Alert System. Now when a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is issued they run a crawl on the screen and you get those modem-like noises that interrupt the sound from the show we're watching.

WE DON'T NEED THAT!!!

We've gotten along perfectly well for years with maps of colored in counties taking up 1/4 of the screen. We don't need our programs broken into for a lousy Thunderstorm Warning. Unless it's a Tornado I'm fine with just getting the info from the map and any silent crawls they run, the blaring modem is not necessary.
