Zephyr Field is located just west of downtown New Orleans in Metairie, and because it's not in the "city proper", it survived the hurricane's wrath pretty well. It still suffered some damages but nothing that would keep them from continuing to play. Actually it was because of its strength that it almost lost Triple-A for the 2006 season. FEMA and the National Guard were utilizing Zephyr Field as an emergency relief staging center, following the storm.
