Probably the worst kind of terror attack in France, the Nice macabre will be etched in everyone's mind for years to come. When the authorities confirm a terror angle, the residents of Nice believe in something beyond the comprehension of extremists-HUMANITY.

Amid calls for #prayforNice, residents of the city turn to Twitter offering help for the scared, helpless and the injured.

Some users also redirect victims to #PortesOuvertesNice, if they wish to get shelter or a free pick-up. In fact, a visit to the site exposes you to a plethora of information-starting basic things that tend to skip out of one's mind at the time of crisis, for instance country code.

One Iclo says on Twitter, "If you are looking for a lift or a safe place to stay. I'm 30 minutes away from Nice. Let me know!"

A visit to Twitter would pop out 6 different accounts Pray for Nice, all flooded with wishes and prayers for the victims. It is world solidarity, they say!
