How can I silence Severe Alerts?

Up to 11:30 last night, Sprint kept sending Severe Alerts to my phone. Considering these are given an obnoxious tone and vibration, they make it difficult to sleep. Also, they are rarely as urgent as they seem since every time, they warn me about storms, floods, or potential tornados that never actually affect my area. I assume that the service could be beneficial in the future, but it is currently an incovenience.

How can I silence these Severe Alerts or make them behave like regular text messages?

That allowed us to disable them. Thank you!

By the way, would you happen ot know if there is a way to just change the alert sound? If not, just disabling it is fine, too.
