YAKIMA, Wash. -- If you drive by Yakima State Fair Park Thursday and notice it looks like a war zone, don't worry, it's just a drill.

Operation Eagle Eye is conducting a full scale exercise of a terrorist event. The exercise scenario is a simulated fictitious event at the Sundome. It deteriorates into a hazardous materials and hostage situation for responders to deal with.

The exercise runs from 9 AM to 3 PM Thursday. It will involve about 60 volunteer from the community who will be playing roles.

Organizers say they can't predict exactly how the event will play out because emergency responders have been asked to respond as if it was real.
