PHILADELPHIA , November 4, 2011 () – About 15,000 customers are still without power nearly a week after a rare pre-Halloween snowstorm knocked out power to more than a half-million people in Pennsylvania.

Met-Ed reports more than 14,000 remain without power Friday morning, the vast majority in hard-hit Berks County. PPL Corp. reports a few hundred of its customers are also still without service.

The unusually early storm brought down limbs and power lines across a swath of central to northeastern Pennsylvania last week as heavy snow piled up on still-leafy trees. Officials say the storm contributed to eight deaths, including that of a man who died when a tree fell on his home.
