HONOKAHUA BAY, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A Brown Water Advisory on Maui has been issued for Honokahua Bay due to heavy rains. 

Officials say the sand berm has again been breached and turbid waters are flowing into the bay.  The public is advised 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.

Turbid water runoff has been known to attract sharks due to possible dead animals being washed into the ocean. If coastal waters are brown, stay out.
