Massive diversions plan

Hello,

I am an atc in the Paris ACC and I was wondering: in case of really bad weather, how are major airports's closures managed in ACCs outside France.?
In Paris, if a major airport closes, we have a "plan" but every coordination to gather information about airports's parking slots in the vicinity has to be done manually through phone communications. How is it done in other countries? Do you have some web-tool to interrogate airports nearby (or not) about their parking slots?
I know that Eurocontrol started the development of a tool to manage massive diversions, but it seemed that only France was interested in it.

Thank you in advance for you answers.

We coordinate for availability of bays and diversion thereafter plan to bring them back by alloting slots in coordination with ATFM in India

London has an electronic database that airport operators are supposd to log onto each day and state the number and type(size) of aircraft they can take. On this website are telephone numbers for ATC and airport OPS, in reality it still requires considerable telephone coordination and airports tend to favour base opeartors in my experience therefore leaving some carriers with little choice.
