Schoolgirls stuck in New York home by next week

The 38 schoolgirls stuck in New York have managed to secure flights home six days after they were due home.

The girls battled out one of the biggest storms in living memory from Monday 29 October through the early hours of Tuesday 30.

Three of the girls will be flying home on Monday as they are either running out of medication or have important exams that determine if they get into their chosen university. Everyone else will be flying home on Tuesday.

Read about their experiences here.
