In a mirror image of the #PorteOuverte hashtag which people in Paris used to tell each other where those who had been left stranded by the attacks could find a place to stay, hashtags like "#StrandedInUS" and "#StrandedInCanada" began popping up for French people who had been left adrift by canceled flights back home.

As of Saturday morning, French airports were staying open, meaning that the people stuck in other countries could possibly go home soon.
