About 6,000 National Grid customers are being asked to reduce their use of electricity until 10 p.m. Tuesday while crews repair damage at two substations in the area.

Work began Monday evening to restore service to the affected area, which includes parts of Amherst, Snyder, Eggertsville and the neighborhood around the Buffalo Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

National Grid advised customers to close window shades, drapes and blinds to reduce heating from the sun, raise the settings on air conditioners, use fans for cooling, turn off lights that are not needed, and delay using dishwashers and washing machines.
