Stranded? Use the hashtag #PorteOuverteFR people are offering shelter for those who feel they are at risk or are stranded.

If you’re alone and frightened, please use the hashtag #MeetParisians. As there are French people who are waiting with open arms to help you feel safe. Meet them, have a coffee and talk. Tweeps are using the hashtag to organize meals, meetings and food for fellow travelers.
