Americans open their homes to stuck French travelers

Hundreds of Americans are offering their homes to French travelers who are stuck in the United States.

In the aftermath of the Paris attacks Friday, airports in France remained open, though some airlines reported canceled flights.

Americans have turned to social media, using the hashtag #StrandedinUS to open their homes to people who are having trouble getting home to France.

From Los Angeles to Hawaii to New York, Americans are flooding the Twitter feed offering a place to stay, transportation and food.

… And other things. Kimberly Harrington tweeted from Vermont, offering a guest room, beer and syrup.

A Chicagoan with a pet dog had a room to take in a traveler.

Flight to France cancelled + stranded at #BTV (Vermont)? DM me. We have a guest room, beer + syrup! #strandedinUS https://t.co/kVcqmqesrz
