Backyard flooding due to overwhelmed drains

Backyard flood = Lake front property

Due to the large amount of rain overnight and early this morning, our neighborhood's drains were overwhelmed. The drains in our backyards began FILLING our joined area with water and debris.

The water level reached several houses, as the street and other collection basins filled and flooded over. Many houses got water in their basements, landscaping items have migrated to other houses, debris including masses of old corn cobs (from nearby fields?!?) have been depostied across many yards. And now - the clean up begins.
