Philippines—The Youtube video of Snow falling in Davao City Philippines was a hoax confirmed by Philippine government weather official. The Video allegedly showed heavy snow falling on banana trees. The story was produced by an online agency and was published on Youtube and received different comments when it went viral online few days ago. Some comment says it was an effect of climate change.
“First this video might be a hoax (“might”) NASA or any server organization might be covering the snow fall in the Philippines…. You said dont believe things online… Might be a hoax Just saying”
PAGASA says, snow is unlikely in the Philippines which is a tropical country. The video didn’t show snow fall but ash fall actually taken during Mt. Mayon’s eruption in 2009. The temperature on Wednesday when the supposed snow fall was experienced was 33 degree Celsius- which is too warm for icy conditions. The weather official also denied the 3.0 $Million damaged worth of crop.
