Cause: Heavy rains
Detail: A Brown Water Advisory is being issued for Honokahua Bay due to heavy rains last night. 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 coastal waters are turbid and brown, stay out. UPDATE: Slack tides have taken the turbid out to sea but a portion of the bay is still impacted.
