Drains are overflowing when it rains and water just runs down the street

Previous report 1842754. I had an idiotic reply saying that someone looked and couldn't see any flooding so closed the report. Who mentioned flooding?? The set of drains [3 or 4] on the north side of the road are obviously blocked so that rainwater comes out one drain further up and runs down the road until past this section where it then goes down an unblocked drain. Why is anyone looking for flooding, its on a hill? And when its not raining?
