ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque officials say a major exercise being conducted Wednesday tests the city's ability to respond to a major disaster.
    
The exercise is based on a scenario involving a simulated bus crash on Interstate 40 that causes multiple casualties.
    
The Office of Emergency Management says the exercise features activities at hospitals and at several city and police command posts.
