Chainsaw-Wielding Nun Joins Relief Work In Hurricane Irma Hit Florida

A Florida nun made a decision to forego divine intervention this week, instead picking up a chainsaw to join the clean-up efforts following Hurricane Irma.

"The road was blocked, we couldn't get through, and I saw someone spin in the mud and nearly ... go off the road", Sister Margaret told CNN.

The chainsaw-toting sister is seen cutting into a tree that fell during the storm.

"There was a need", she said. Some of the alumni from our school saw what I was doing, they recognized the habit and the sisters, so they came to help out, she said.
