Hurricane Irma's incurred a whopping $25 billion in damages for Florida and one of the cities that was hit the worst was Miami.
But residents are already working to clear the wreckage in the wake of the hurricane.
Like this chainsaw-wielding nun who began cutting up trees that fell in her neighborhood. Thankfully, the Miami-Dade Police Department was there to capture the act on camera, which they uploaded to Facebook.
Sister Margaret Ann is the principal of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School and has become somewhat of a local celebrity for her proactive approach in rebuilding after the hurricane.
What's even crazier is that Sister Margaret Ann cleared the wreckage in 100-degree weather, dressed in her habit. When off-duty officer Silvia Nadal noticed she was taking it upon herself to clear the road, he felt compelled to help her and it wasn't long before neighbors joined in as well.
People are in love with the "Chainsaw Nun" after the video of her tearing up the fallen trees went viral.
Looks like someone asked herself, "What would Jesus do?" and really took it to heart. Well, there weren't chainsaws in his day, but, if they existed and some trees needed clearing, you can bet he'd be the first one cutting into them.
The death toll for Hurricane Harvey currently stands at seventy, while Hurricane Irma is predicted to cause massive devastation in Florida. Irma has already slammed the Caribbean, reducing some areas to rubble.
Hurricane Harvey moved into Texas as a Category 4 hurricane over the weekend, and has since been downgraded to a tropical storm. Despite being downgraded, Harvey is still the strongest storm to hit the United States since Charley in August 2004 and the most powerful to hit Texas since Hurricane Carla in 1961.
The National Weather Service predicted that as much as 50 inches of rain has fallen in some areas, and at least five deaths have been reported. Perhaps the hardest hit area has been Houston, the most populous city in the state, with millions being affected by flash flooding.
Joel Osteen, head of the Lakewood mega-church in Houston, Texas, also became the focus of the Internet's anger over the past several days. When Hurricane Harvey hit the coast, flooding huge swaths of land and leaving thousands without shelter, Osteen refused to open the doors of his 17,000-seat building.
Osteen then began claiming the church was inaccessible due to flooding, despite pictures people quickly shared on Twitter showing the premises almost completely unharmed. In response to the intense public outcry, Osteen finally bowed to pressure and opened Lakewood to those in need.
