Parts of Benguet experienced some hail on Saturday, the precipitation thick enough that the ground looked like it was covered in snow.

Barangay Ekip in Bokod town, and barangay Bashoy in Kabayan town witnessed the phenomenon, which, according to the PAGASA, is a common occurrence in the region, although it usually happens between May and July.

Ekip and Bashoy villages are near Mount Pulag National Park.

“Mas malalaki pa kesa sa mais. Yearly naman itong nangyayari sa amin pero mas madami saka mas malalaki ngayong taon,” resident Sylvia Guinsiman said of the hail that townsfolk said began to fall last Thursday.
