HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Due to the heavy rain on Oahu over the past few days, the state Department of Health has issued Brown Water Advisories for all beaches around the island. 

The DOH advises the public to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff because of possible overflowing cesspools, sewer manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals and associated flood debris.

Other coastal areas may also be affected, so if the water is brown, stay out.
