As residents of Varsity View, Haultain and Nutana sought places to warm up, some took to social media to see how widespread Sunday evening's power outage was. (CBC)

On one of the coldest days this winter, the power went out in the neighbourhoods of Nutana, Varsity View and Haultain. During the almost four-hour outage the City of Saskatoon posted one message to Facebook and one on Twitter saying the power was out, then another when it went back on. 

Some residents felt they were left in the dark. They were unhappy with the amount of information provided, especially when it was so cold.

What do you think? Should the city be providing more information on its social media accounts? Or is it doing enough? What do you think is the most effective way the city could inform residents?
