A nun in Florida (US) is being hailed a hero for coming out and doing her part with the clean-up efforts following Hurricane Irma.

Sister Margaret Ann brought a chainsaw to cut down trees. Miami-Dade police posted a video on Facebook taken by off-duty officer of the nun hard at work with a smile on her face.

In the post, police said "acts of kindness" like the nun's is a reminder they are part of one community.
