The Department of Health issued a Brown Water Advisory for West Maui beaches Saturday afternoon. 

Officials say Friday night's heavy rain prompted the advisory. 

Health officials advise 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.
