Residents in Brussels who live close to the sites of the Brussels attacks are offering shelter to members of the public who are stranded.

The good Samaritans are using hashtags on Twitter to offer up rooms in their homes for anyone who needs it.

The hashtags #PorteOuverte (French for “open door”), #ikwilhelpen (Dutch for “I want to help”), #OpenHouse, and #BrusselsWelcome, to offer their spare bedrooms to those who are affected by flight cancellations.
