KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Brown Water Advisory was issued Friday for the entire island of Kauai.

The Department of Health advises the public to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff due to possible overflowing cesspools, sewer manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and associated flood debris. If coastal waters are turbid and brown, stay out.
