I'm torn between a green roof (food production and insulation) and a concrete roof (fighting position). Either way, it'll need to drain fast enough that the rainfall from a hurricane can't collapse it. So a green roof is probably unworkable anyway.

Concrete roof with large planter boxes for gardening. Confining dirt to the planter boxes limits the water retained during heavy storms, and they act as cover so you can walk around the roof inside the planter box perimeter more safely.

Sprayfoam on the inside will give you as much insulation as soil on a living roof.
