Miami nun with chainsaw helps cleanup after Irma

She told CNN's Erin Burnett that the road was block and she saw a driver spin the mud and nearly hit a wall.

People from all walks of life are coming together in the wake of Hurricane Irma to help those impacted by the storm...including a nun.

The Miami-Dade Police Department posted a video online of a chainsaw-wielding nun helping clear downed trees in the area.

The tweet by Miami-Dade police was re-tweeted 2,300 times in 14 hours.

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

It is a completely unfounded fear - Muslims are just 4% of Burma's population - but many Buddhist Burmese are obsessed by it. Myanmar has said it is was counting on China and Russian Federation to protect it from any Security Council censure.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, some commenters on the nun's video also raised concerns and said it is risky to wear loose-fitting clothing while operating a chainsaw.

"We teach our students to do what you can to help, so this was an opportunity where I could do something to help, and thanks be to God I was able to do it", she said. "That's what I wanted to do".

Tuesday's guest said she does not know when her school will reopen, as the air conditioner was damaged during the hurricane.

Dressed head-to-toe in black with her veil blowing in the wind she told reporters: "The road was blocked, we couldn't get through, and I saw someone spin in the mud and nearly go off the road". Also in addition to these risks, tension in fallen trees might cause unexpected movement while cutting them, making the limbs pop out, which may hurt the person trying to cut it or hit the equipment or maybe cause the trunk to move in a way that leads you to become stuck.
