Balonglong also said Thursday that while there were two recorded incidents on December 24 and 25 namely the residential fire in Barangay Tiniguiban and a seized rifle in Brgy. Cabayugan, the Christmas celebration in Puerto Princesa was still peaceful in general.
On the other hand, Palawan PPO spokesperson, Police Major Ric Ramos said no untoward incident happened in the province during the celebration.

Ramos stated the Palawan PPO will remain on “full alert status” until January 5, 2020.
“Generally peaceful tayo. Ang pinaka-focus natin ngayon kasi may bagyo, si Ursula,” he said.
Ramos added all police stations in the 23 municipalities of Palawan, especially in Calamian Group of Islands, are on high alert due to Tropical Storm Ursula.
