Recent rains have created murky waters on Maui and prompted the state Department of Health to issue brown water advisories for Honokahua Bay and Honolua Bay on Tuesday.

Health officials urge the public to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff, which can contain pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals and chemicals.

If the water is turbid and brown, stay out.
