This wasn't an evacuation, it was an illegal mass eviction. The proof is they are now looking for rezoning.

In Florida a mobile home park can only be closed and the home owners evicted for change of the use of the land. This means the park owner has to get the land rezoned while the people are living there and can take their case before the city commission. To close without prior rezoning to the new use violates the fair dealing requirement between park and home owners. In that case the land must sit vacant for at least two years before rezoned to a new use.

Of course some cities and park owners ignore the law and when the residents won't fight for their homes they lose them.
