Well if they were trying to evacuate the port, you would think Barbara Neff would be knowledgable to that information. It does not seem she knew anything about a "port evacuation" which leads me to think there was none. And by the tone of the article, it seems the setting of sail of Bounty was the Capt decision and 100% voluntary.
You could be right, maybe the Port of New London ordered him out.
