A Brown Water Advisory is being issued for the islands of Kauai, Oahu, Maui and Molokai because of runoff from heavy showers.
The public is advised to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff due to possible overflowing cesspools, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, chemicals, and associated flood debris. The health department warning says boaters, swimmers and surfers should stay out of coastal waters if they are turbid and brown.
