Sister Margaret Ann is just one of the heroes of Hurricane Irma, having taken to the streets with a chainsaw to help with the clean-up effort.

The Florida nun was filmed by a Miami-Dade off-duty police officer wearing her full habit as she got to work.

Police said the nun was cutting trees to clear the roadways around Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School near Miami.

According to the school’s website, Sister Margaret Ann is the principal and she wasted no time in getting the roads back to the way they were before the devastating hurricane struck the area.

Police say “acts of kindness” like Sister Margaret Ann’s remind residents that they’re all part of the same community.
