St Croix Animal Welfare Center needs help with storm prep on Monday
I saw the posting on their Facebook page and called.
They said they need help on Monday (I asked about Sunday but they said they are waiting until Monday to prepare for the storm. I have to work so I can't help on Monday 🙁

We are looking for some volunteers to help us with storm prep the day before it is scheduled to be here. If you think you can help please message us or call. 778-1650 Thank you!
They'll need help cleaning up on Monday!!!!!
At this point, it looks like TS Danny will be on top of us around midnight (end of day) on Monday, so cleanup would be Tuesday.
However, it's still 3+ days away, so the forecast is not very accurate. We'll have a much better idea of track, strength and timing 24 hours before it hits (or misses)
You are right - that is correct as per the 2pm update.
STX is at 17.7N and 64.8W
Reports from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that Danny
is now a Category 3 Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind
Scale. The maximum winds are estimated to be 115 mph (185 km/h)
with higher gusts.
No additional intensification is expected, as Danny is moving into
an area of unfavorable upper-level winds, and a weakening trend is
expected to begin later today. Consequently, no adjustment to the
forecast intensities from the previous advisory is required.

They should probably do the storm prep on Sunday for the shelter.
"Meteorologist Odalys Martinez at the National Weather Service in San Juan said the current forecast has the winds at around 63 mph when it reaches the Virgin Islands. She said the center should pass between St. Croix and St. Thomas/St. John around 2 a.m. Tuesday.
“It will be just east of the Virgin Islands at 5 p.m. Monday,” Martinez said.
She said this means that conditions will have already started to deteriorate.
Martinez added that residents should complete their preparations by Monday morning.
