Will bleached Monti recover from hot weather shipping?

I just received a few Montipora frags in the mail and they arrived white. Has anyone had luck with recovery of them from the heat or are they goners?
Have them sitting in my tank hoping they'll make it. I have experience with soft corals, but not sps.

If there are still polyps/alive tissue, maybe. You just have to keep it in a low flow low light area until you see it start to bounce back.

Ditto what the above post said. Low light low light. When I worked at a lfs we had some Monti's live throughout dry shipped bags. Corals are pretty resilient
