Chainsaw-wielding catholic nun in her full habit cleans up Hurricane Irma damage
A Catholic nun armed with a chainsaw has been spotted chopping up fallen trees to help her community following the destruction of Hurricane Irma.
Sister Margaret Ann was spotted by an off-duty policeman clearing the road in her community after the storm downed trees and closed the school where she worked in Florida. The policeman took a video of the nun working and shared it online, and it had now been viewed thousands of times.
He captioned the video: ""As we recover from hurricane Irma, these acts of kindness remind us all that we are #OneCommunity in #MiamiDadeCounty! Thank you Sister and all of our neighbors that are working together to get through this! #MiamiDadeStrong"
Sister Margaret later spoke to CNN and told them she wanted to get involved.
The officer had told her "You know though, Sister, the police will do this" but she replied "it's going to take them too long ... it's dangerous, people are going to get hurt here."
Sister Margaret told CNN: "There was a need, I had the means, so I wanted to help out. We teach our students: Do what you can to help other people, don't think of yourselves. That's what I wanted to do."
Sister Margaret is based at Archbishop Coleman F Carroll High School in West Kendall, but it is not known when it will reopen after the air conditioning was damaged in the storm. At least 38 people in the Caribbean lost their lives and five more in the US as Irma battered Florida.
