Chainsaw-wielding nun among those helping get south Florida cleaned up

Miami-Dade Police Department Facebook Page

On Tuesday, an off-duty officer of the Miami-Dade Police Department captured footage of a chainsaw-wielding nun removing cut-off limbs and debris that was knocked down by the treacherous storm.

'As we recover from #HurricaneIrma, these acts of kindness remind us that we are all #onecommunity in #MiamiDadeCounty!' the police department wrote on its Facebook page.

Sister Margaret Ann, of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School was seen cutting a fallen tree in her southwest Miami-Dade County.

So she found a chainsaw and got to work.

"Thank you sister and all of our neighbours that are working together to get through this".

"I've been in education for more than 30 years, and we teach our students to do what you can to help other people, don't just think about yourselves, so that's what I wanted to do", said Sister Margret. "So I wanted to help out".

"There was a need", she said.

"It became a really good community project", she said.

The risky task of storm cleanup should be handled with many precautions including the risk of encountering electrical fires and fallen wires.
