"amend of her own"

Found this on the Facebook page for the National Hurricane Center: “mother nature has amend of her own”
http://www.facebook.com/US.NOAA.Nationa … Center.gov

Don’t know if it’s an eggcorn exactly. In the context, I suppose it could mean that Nature will amend things as she wishes. I don’t know; it seems like a stretch. Maybe it’s just the way the writer pronounces “a mind.”
