Who owned all those sunken cars in New Orleans?

We have all seen the pictures of the unused school and city busses in New Orleans. (If not, look here.)

This had me thinking about all those people who "did not have the means to escape" the hurricane because they did not own a car;
Just who owned all those cars now swamped in the flooded areas of New Orleans where they have been pulling people off rooftops and out of flooded streets? I'm not talking about a scattered car here and there. There are scores of cars in those flooded areas.
