“The public is advised to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff due to possible overflowing cesspools, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and associated flood debris,” according to the advisory.

Not all coastal areas may be impacted by runoff, however, if the water is brown the public is advised to stay out.  The public is also advised to practice good personal hygiene and follow-up with a primary care physician if any health concerns arise.
