    County alerts via voice calls?

    I'm aware of imminent danger/Amber alert and such text messages being used. However, today I received a phone call at approx 4.43am indicating me about a tornado warning. I got the same warning as a text as well.
    My question is, how do I unsubscribe from these intrusive voice calls, since the text message method is sufficient.

    It may be some county website. I get occasional calls from my town to notify me of road closures and the like.

    I don't think you can opt out of those type of notifications/calls as it is considered a public safety issue. For your peace of mind, turn the volume off and sleep more soundly at night.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....

    Interesting, I think you may be correct. Because the area code of said number is a local area code.
