Area affected includes Point Hudson dive site. Overflow happened a few days ago but the warning is still in effect.

Thanks for the heads up! I was hoping to go there soon!
Kind request: Always keep your reg in your mouth when entering/leaving the water! There's always a chance of a slip or a rogue wave, and several locals have perished from not having their regs at the ready over the years.

Advisory lifted. Now all you need to worry about is the normal icky bacteria.
