Brown Water Advisories issued for some Maui beaches following heavy rain

MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Heavy rains on Maui on Wednesday have prompted the state Department of Health to issue Brown Water Advisories for some of the island's beaches.

Brown Water Advisories are in effect for Honolua and Honokahua Bays.

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.

If the water is brown, stay out.
