Do a search for this. The ash from the Icelandic volcano has over taken Europe. Many of the airports in Europe have closed.
People that are stranded in Europe are using social media to catch rides and find people that will help them. There are facebook groups and hash tags that are helping people get home. They are using Twitter and Facebook to get tricks and tips on travel. People are asking their followers on Twitter who is driving to where and whether they can catch a ride with them. It’s pretty amazing to see the street innovation of social media.
