The Crisis Management Committee yesterday announced that residents of Barangays Arena Blanco, Mampang, and Talon-talon can go back to their places of origin, except those staying near the mangroves or whose houses were burned, referring to those residing in Puerto Princesa in Talon-Talon.

A CMC report stated that areas that were cleared and can be re-occupied (point of reference from downtown going to Barangay Mampang) are from the main road within 50 meters in Barangay Arena Blanco; right side of the road within 100 meters in Barangay Talon-talon and from main road within 50 meters in Barangay Mampang.

Left side of the roads of all three barangays are likewise cleared.

Entry to the three barangays is thru the Tetuan-Tugbungan-Talon-Talon Loop route only.

The CMC also urged officials of the three barangays to remind their constituents to be wary of foreign objects and to immediately report any sighting of such to the nearest PNP/ AFP outpost.

Barangay officials are also directed to facilitate the orderly return of the residents to their homes.

Meanwhile, clearing and retrieval operations in other affected barangays are still ongoing. – Dan Toribio Jr.
