    buy a tarp with metal groments, get decently thick rope and tie the shit out of it, the cover wont blow off with the tarp over it tied down

    How close are you to New Orleans? If it were me I'd try to get my car in a garage or just get it out of the area.

    Agreed. This is the only guarantee wind, trees, or flood waters won't get it.

    Find a parking deck take it almost to the top, and park it there. Hopefully you will be atleast 20 to 30 ft off the ground, and safe from major damage.

    Yeah that's probably a good idea...get it in the center away from the openings and up a few levels in case of flooding.
