The title says it all. She became a sensation on social media yesterday and now she tells her story. Check out the video interview. Details:

Across the state of Florida, and up into Georgia and South Carolina, images of first responders have become a welcome sight amid the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

But among the usual uniforms — those of police, firefighters and paramedics — a nun’s habit stands out.

And when said nun is wielding a chainsaw, well, that is something that can renew faith in even the most downtrodden.

“There was a need, I had the means, so I wanted to help out,” Sister Margaret Ann told Erin Burnett on Tuesday evening.

God love her.
