Power outage in Amherst and Williamsville

Posted at 11:41 PM, Jun 03, 2016

A power outage in Williamsville and Central Amherst left approximately 2,500 customers in the dark on Friday night.

According to a National Grid spokesman, a problem with a transmission line created a "fairly serious fault" at the substation on Ayer Road.

By 10:50pm Friday night, two crews had been dispatched to deal with the issue, but officials did not have an indication of when power would be restored.
