Devin Wilburn, 12, said students at St. James Middle School had just completed a tornado drill. Then they interrupted their science test to rush back into the hallway for the real thing. The children knelt down and put their hands over their heads, he said.
"I just heard a bunch of thunder and ripping, because the top of the roof came off," Devin said.
No teachers, children or staff members were injured.
You want to do it right when it's the real thing. And as they say in sports, you play like you practice.
