Our flooded street

Published: Sep 24, 2013 4:10 AM EDT

Hi WINK Weather,

We live off Orlando Blvd, between Midway and Peachland, and have had standing water for months.  Our drainage is horrible, and our street  feels like the red-headed step-children in our area. Our side yards have had water sitting there for months.  Red ants are moving to higher grounds, thus going closer to our home making landscaping and upkeep almost impossible.  The mosquitos are crazy, and are a danger to us and pets.   I've asked the city to re-evaluate out area, as we have no drainage out of our street.  I have heard no response.  

Yesterday, they put in huge drainage pipes at the end of the street. The attached picture is what our street looks like today.  This is NOT what I meant when I asked for drainage for our street.

Just sending a photo of our little street underwater!
