While people in some parts of the Philippines are complaining about the summer heat, ice pallets reportedly rained down on some areas of the Cordillera Region.
According to a report by 24 Oras, a hailstorm hit Sabangan, Mountain Province on April 22.
The hailstorm, accompanied by strong rain, lasted for three minutes. Moreover, there are no casualties recorded because of the pelting ice.
As stated by the newscast, pallets of ice also hit its neighboring municipality of Bontoc.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said that hail occurs during severe thunderstorms as rising air carry droplets of water high enough that they freeze and then fall to the ground, an article by GMA News Online said.
As per the report, strong rains are expected over Central Luzon on April 23 morning. Rains may also be experienced over the Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley, and Palawan in the afternoon.
