LIHUE, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The state Department of Health has issued a Brown Water Advisory for Kauai due to heavy rains.

The entire island was under a Flash Flood Warning early Friday as heavy rainfall drenched the area.

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

If the water is brown, stay out.
