Chainsaw-wielding nun helps clean up South Florida community

The habit to help your community can be a hard one to break, especially if you are a nun.

Miami-Dade police shared video of Sister Margaret Ann cleaning up after Hurricane Irma.

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

The sister works at Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in West Kendall.

Irma made landfall over the weekend with winds clocking in at 130 mph and damage across the state is quite extensive.

The police tweet ends by thanking everyone in the community for “working together to get through this! We are #MiamiDadeStrong.”

Less than one foot of water keeping 350+ alligators from escaping Texas park

With more than 350 American alligators living outside of the largest park and sanctuary in Southeast Texas, “Gator Country” is at risk of losing all of its gators to flooding caused by Tropical Storm Harvey.

“We’re less than a foot from (water) going over the fences,” Gary Saurage, owner of Gator Country, told a CNN affiliate station in Beaumont, Texas.

“All of these are certified, high fences, but when it won’t quit, it won’t quit. We’ve worked around the clock and I don’t know what else to do. We’re truly tired. Everybody’s at the end of it, man. We don’t know what to do,” Saurage said.

The park, located 90 miles east of Houston in Beaumont, Texas, has received more than 17 inches of rain in the past couple of days.

However, if Tropical Storm Harvey continues to dump heavy rain in southeast Texas, Saurage’s life work of rescuing gators for more than 10 years could be washed away in a matter of days.

“I’ve never seen (the water) stay anywhere near this before. The staying power of this storm is just unbelievable,” Saurage told the CNN affiliate station.  

According to the park’s website, Gator Country is known for rescuing alligators from “people’s backyards, ponds, swimming pools” and gators that are stranded after severe weather.

Despite the park’s crocodiles, venomous snakes and other dangerous creatures being put away at high enough ground not to be a risk of escaping, Saurage told the CNN affiliate the alligators in the fenced areas could come over the fences if the water gets high enough.

According to the CNN affiliate, the park’s buildings and the newly added gift shop have received more than a foot of water inside.

More than 50 water rescues have been conducted in the Jefferson County area since midnight, according to the CNN affiliate.
