Nun With A Chainsaw Clears Hurricane Irma Debris Like A Pro

Chainsaw-Wielding Nun Caught No Cam Clearing Debris From Irma

Chainsaw-Wielding Nun Caught No Cam Clearing Debris From Irma

Sister Margaret Ann said she knew of a chainsaw in her school's closet and felt it was her duty to help remove the tree that was blocking the road.

Across the state of Florida, and up into Georgia and SC, images of first responders have become a welcome sight amid the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

Sister Margaret Ann of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in southwest Miami-Dade County made a decision to help out by cutting down a fallen tree in a full habit and covered by a black apron and work gloves.

An off-duty Miami-Dade police officer stopped in his tracks to shoot video of Sister Ann in action.

The police tweet ends by thanking everyone in the community for "working together to get through this!"

However, Sister Margaret told the officer that it would take too long, and it needed to be done now.

But Sister Margaret Ann is a nun with a chainsaw, and she's using it to do her part to help her neighborhood recover after Hurricane Irma. "So I wanted to help out".

What's not common, however, is to see the person behind the saw wearing a nun's habit.

"There was a need", she said. "That's what we do", she said.
