Portuguese Man O War in Chesapeake Bay?

It's such a beautiful creature!!!  You'll see this bright blue bag of gas floating on the top of the water and EXTREMELY LONG tentacles that hang below that have a POWERFUL sting that requires hospitalization.  WHY do I bring this up????  Because one was found on our side the the Chesapeake Bay aka my backyard on Shore Dr.  This is not typical!  Recently WTKR did a story on people finding them in Myrtle Beach (click here).  We do have a bunch of harmless jellyfish in the Bay but if you a blue one...swim other direction!  Here is more info on what we can find jellyfish wise in our Chesapeake Bay (click here)
