There's a mystery humming on Vashon Island. Dozens of residents are baffled by a strange noise and they can't figure out where's its coming from.
"It's all encompassing, you go outside and try to isolate it directionally and you just can't do it," said resident, Cindy Hoyt.
For the last four years Cindy and her husband, Jeff, have been hearing that strange sound around their island home. Cindy says it typically lasts for about 10 minutes at a time.
A mystery is growing in the waters of Puget Sound after the death of another gray whale.
The whale discovered on West Seattle’s Arroyo Beach Wednesday is the fourth to die in Puget Sound waters this month.
NOAA Fisheries biologist, Kristin Wilkinson, measured the marine mammal Thursday morning and took some samples of its blubber. She said the whale was a young female, about 33 feet long and somewhere between one and eight years old. She said the whale had no obvious signs of trauma.
“The animal does look a little emaciated but that is following the trends we've seen during other necropsies," Wilkinson said.
Two other whales that died this week also showed signs that they weren't eating enough.
