ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Members of a high school mock trial team have been trying to get back to Georgia after being stranded in New York City during Hurricane Sandy.

The Jonesboro High School team placed fourth in an international competition in New York City this weekend. They were stranded in a Brooklyn hotel on Tuesday.

One of the judges, Clayton County State Court Solicitor General Tasha Mosley, said Tuesday the students were trying to make arrangements to get out of town on a charter bus or a train.

Mosley said the team has been safe and warm on the 12th floor of their hotel. She said her biggest concern is price gouging. She said she spent $55 on 21 bottles of water.
