    The Department of Health issued an advisory saying the public should 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,” the department advises the public to stay out.
