A great white shark could soon be in Virginia waters. The shark named Mary Lee is traveling up the east coast towards Hampton Roads.

The great white was tagged in September and her path has been tracked ever since.  She was last last tracked near Ocracoke Island in North Carolina’s Outer Banks Tuesday morning

Mary Lee is 16-feet long and weighs about 3,500 pounds.
