Emergency drill at DeSales

Emergency crews rushed to a Lehigh County university Friday morning ... but it was just for practice.

DeSales University in Center Valley held its annual disaster simulation drill in the parking lot of Billera Hall.

This year's scenario involved a tornado hitting the campus during a tennis match.

Organizers said the drill helps first responders practice handling massive amounts of casualties.

Nursing students from the school portrayed some of the victims.
