Columbia, SC (WLTX) - We're now in hurricane season, and Tuesday several tate agencies practiced an evacuation drill to prepare in the event a major storm heads our way.

The State Transportaton Department the Highway Patrol and half a dozen other state agencies drilled on what they would do to reverse the lanes of certain roads and highways to get people away from the coast faster.

The state came up with the lane reversal plan after the huge traffic jam before Hurricane Floyd in 1999.
