A 45 ton, 40-foot long female Sei whale washed ashore in Sandbridge, Virginia, just south of Virginia Beach. The Virginia Beach Aquarium planned to do a necropsy on site, but marks on the whale indicated interaction with a ship. Sei whales are an endangered species and are not common in the Virginia Beach area.
