About 8,800 households in West Seneca and a small portion of Orchard Park lost their power Saturday afternoon, according to NYSEG.
West Seneca police announced it had been restored shortly after 4:30 p.m.
The outage was centered around Orchard Park Road and Ridge Road, according to a map provided by NYSEG.
West Seneca police called the power failure a “major power outage in town.”
The power failure struck as temperatures soared to the upper 80s Saturday in the Buffalo area, according to the National Weather Service.
In a tweet, West Seneca police gave “a huge thanks from officers directing traffic who had several citizens bring water and Gatorade to them.”
