Chainsaw wielding nun cleans up Miami after Hurricane Irma

Sister Margaret Ann cutting down trees in Florida ollowing Hurricane Irma

Police said Sister Margaret Ann was cutting trees to clear the roadways around Archbishop Coleman Carrol High School in the aftermath of hurricane Irma.

Florida's Miami-Dade Police Department had tweeted the video earlier that day, thanking her - and other Floridians - for helping with cleanup efforts.

Police said "acts of kindness" like Sister Margaret Ann's remind residents that they're all part of the same community.

"Chainsawing in a habit is not a good habit, she is going to get severely injured when the chain grabs the cloth", warned another.

Miami-Dade police went on to thank her and "all our neighbors that are working together to get through this".

The phrase "chainsaw-wielding nun" is one we didn't know we would need to use in the wake of Irma, but it shows the breadth of the work it will take to recover from this storm - in Florida, in neighboring states and in the Caribbean. "I saw somebody spin in the mud and nearly go into a wall, going off the road".

"They needed to be used", she said, during her prime-time cable news interview.

Sister Margaret Ann's example resonated online.

"I had the means - so I wanted to help out."

Some Facebook commenters expressed concern for the nun, pointing out how hot it was in Miami and how risky it was to use a chainsaw while wearing loose-fitting clothing like a habit.

"Look at the smile on her face".

Country music singer Dylan Schneider, inspired by "Sister Margaret Ann", belted out lyrics later posted via video on Twitter, and composed some lines about her can-do spirit. "That's what we do", she said.
