    More than a dozen Dallas high school students in New York City for a mock trial are caught in a real natural disaster.

    Thirteen students, two teachers and a parent from Bishop Lynch High School are stranded in New York as the remnants of Hurricane Sandy flood the Big Apple.

    Bishop Kevin Farrell used Skype from the offices of the Dallas Diocese to talk and pray with the students Monday.

    Eve Holder's daughter Tori, a junior on the team, is keeping in contact and easing her mother's fears.

    "She's called me at the end of every night," she said. "She says everything is great; everything is fine. And starting this morning, she sent me a video of them walking around Times Square and saying everything is fine and showing me all the people walking around. She'll text me periodically throughout the day."

    The students were scheduled to leave New York on Monday morning, but their flight was canceled. The group is hoping to return home to North Texas by Wednesday.
