The Philippines is comprised of only two types of weather, sunny and rainy. So it's quite unusual for ice to "rain" in the country.
However, there have been instances when various parts of the Philippines have experienced hail.
KAMI learned that recently, Facebook page Raffy Tulfo Supporters shared a 2-minute video which showed how it rained ice pellets in Nueva Vizcaya around afternoon.
The owners of the video were credited by the page. They were Jerold Lingat, Kenneth John Tapirei and Edwin Datan.
