Depending on how desperate/committed you are to trapping Mooch you may want to try a "drop trap". I don't know if one is available to you or if you have the resources to make one, but I can tell you that, especially in your situation, it would work. I have a pic of one that I made in my album. It's not a set and leave, it has to be monitored and tripped by hand, but it has trapped every street-wise cat in my neighborhood.
You're right, any cat that would have ventured out during Sandy is one tough kitty!
