Buffalo, NY (WBEN) It's never good to lose power, especially on a hot day like Friday.

National Grid reports more than 10,000 customers in North Buffalo are without power. According to its website, power may not be restored until Saturday morning.

National Grid says crews are in the process of locating and repairing damaged underground cables, and spokesman David Bertola says that may take some time. "When it's an underground cable issue, it takes time to diagnose it and repair it. It's not as simple as flipping a switch," says Bertola. 

A number of traffic lights are also out.
