After more than 80 pupils from local schools on trips to New York are reported to be safe.
Cecilia Motley, Shropshire Council cabinet member for education and skills, said:
The safety and well-being of our pupils is everyone's number one concern, and I know it's been a worrying time for parents who are seeing the images of destruction on the television news.
We are told from the group leaders in New York that the worst of the storm has passed, and apart from some high winds the weather is not actually too bad.
All the pupils are in good spirits and are being well looked after, and parents are being kept up-to-date by the schools regarding when their children will be flying home.
