The Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) system sends warnings for weather and other emergencies. On my AT&T Moto X, the alert is a super loud sound and an alert box with an OK button. Once you push OK, the alert vanishes. Is there any way to recall it and see the alert text again? On iOS, WEA alerts are visible in the usual notifications pane. That doesn't seem to be the case for Android. Does anyone know if there are plans to fix this?

I imagine most people push OK in a panic to stop the loud sound, and then are left wondering what it was exactly that was so important.

    I can confirm that I press OK in a panic to stop the sound, then was able to get zero useful information about the local Amber Alert. – dotVezz Apr 11 '14 at 15:19

Using Oreo (8.1)... Settings -> Apps & notifications -> Advanced -> Emergency alerts -> Emergency alert history.

In 8.0, it might be called "Mobile broadcast settings" instead.

There should be and app on the phone called Emergency Alerts with a red triangle and a white background that will let you view the active emergency alerts in your area.

You can exit the Notification Center by swiping up from the bottom of the screen or by pressing the Home button.
