A video that went viral on social networking sites on July 24 showing a bizarre weather phenomenon of snowfall in Southern Philippines is actually fake, according to experts.

Weather specialists said that the video was taken in 2009 around Christmas during an eruption of Mayon volcano in Albay, showing an ashfall that looked like snow.

While some people thought this could have been a terrible sign of things to come due to climate change, was in fact posted by a bogus news station.

However, the video got more than 820,000 visits on Youtube in three days.
