As the governor of Louisiana has ordered the evacuation of New Orleans, 
I wouldn't look for any of probably hundreds if not thousands of 
companies to be responsive, even if their web sites were still online.

I would look at this as a two part question: how to find out what web 
hosts kept data centers in New Orleans, followed by how to find out who 
the customers of those hosts were!
