A Brown Water Advisory has been issued Friday for Oahu as a result of heavy rain.

The Department of Health said storm water runoff has been entering coastal waters.

Officials urge the public to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff as flood conditions can cause overflowing cesspools, sewer, manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals and other food debris.

Not all coastal areas may be impacted, but officials urge the public to stay out of the water if it's brown.
