MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Brown Water Advisory is being issued for Honokahua Bay, Honolua Bay, and Kihei on the island of Maui due to heavy rains.

The public is advised to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff due to the possibility of overflowing cesspools, sewer manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and other associated flood debris. 

The public is also cautioned to stay out of turbid and brown waters.
