On Wednesday at approximately 10:15 a.m., the Department of Health issued a brown water advisory for Kiona Beach to Kailua Beach due to recent heavy rains.

At approximately 10:40 a.m., the advisory was issued for all east facing shores on Oahu -- Kahuku to Makapuu.

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.

Not all coastal areas may be impacted by runoff. If coastal waters are turbid and brown, stay out and continue to practice good personal hygiene and follow up with your primary care physician if you have any health concerns.
