Pretty good advice so far about removing canvas, doubling your (very long!) docklines to allow for surge, and so on. One thing I haven't seen mentioned, for those staying in a marina slip: check the location of the masts on neighboring boats. When you get to swingin' you don't want their rig tangling with yours; move forward or back a few feet in your slip to offset your rig from your neighbor's. For us liveaboards, also top up water and fuel in case there are outages after the storm. Move your car to high ground and not under a tree limb.
