SUFFOLK -- On Friday, WVEC-TV conducted a hurricane preparedness exercise at its backup studio in the Driver community of Suffolk.

The main WVEC station is located in Norfolk.  Chief engineer Keith O'Malley says, "Something terrible has to have happened in Norfolk for us to be here."

WVEC conducted a mock newscast and tested equipment and systems which might be needed in the aftermath of a major hurricane. 

The Driver facility was built in 2006 but a portion of it was just remodeled this week.
