TXDot Plans for Hurricane Evacuation

The Texas Department of Transportation has come up with a new plan to avoid a traffic nightmare during storm evacuations.

Last year dozens of drivers ran out of gas trying to evacuate south Texas before hurricane Rita, but TX Dot is working with the oil companies to make sure that doesn't happen again.  

The plan includes keeping service stations along the evacuation route open for drivers to buy fuel.
