Bahama evacuees ordered off ship headed for the USThe ferry boat operator that ordered dozens of hurricane evacuees off its boat did so because it did not properly coordinate the evacuation ahead of time, US Customs and Border Protection said Monday.

Late Sunday night, CNN affiliate WSVN reporter Brian Entin posted video from a Balearia ferry boat in which a person announced over a loudspeaker that anyone traveling to the US without a visa must disembark. The ferry was set to travel from hurricane-ravaged Freeport, in the Bahamas, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, when the announcement was made, Entin told CNN.
His video shows families with children getting off the vessel. One woman told Entin that as many as 130 people left the ferry after the announcement.
