A group of 30 Russian university students are on a New Orleans rooftop, awaiting help after being stranded in a building that was flooded by Hurricane Katrina, Russian media reported Wednesday.
"They have no cell phones, and the land line turns on only occasionally," Yelena Andreyeva, the worried mother of one of the students from the Ural Mountains region of Perm, told Rossiya state television.
