As unspeakable tragedy continues to shake France’s capital, Parisians have launched the hashtag #PorteOuverte to offer shelter to those in need.
Reuters reported late Friday night that at least 40 were killed and 60 were wounded in what appeared to be a series of coordinated attacks.
#PorteOuverte, now trending on Twitter, means "Open Door," and is an effort to allow those affected by the tragedy to find safety and refuge.
A Google Map provides the locations of places that generous Parisians have called out as safe locations.
At least one taxi driver is calling on other cabbies in the area to stop charging and offer to bring people home or to safety for free.
"Jean-Pascal, a taxi driver in Paris is calling on other taxi drivers to turn off their meters and bring people home. #shootout," the tweet reads.
Facebook users in Paris are reaching out on the company's "Safety Check," an app that allows users to check in during disasters to alert friends and family that they are safe.
