Why Does Water Come Out of My Dryer Vent After A Storm

Our down spout goes into a drain pipe. The last few storms, the basement has had water come in through the dryer vent, because the drain doesn't appear to be draining. I assume it is blocked. What should I do?

For something like a downspout being clogged, you will probably have to get a drain cleaner out with a jetting machine to remove the leaves and debris that have flushed down the line. This is high-pressure water that will force the sand, leaves and debris out of the pipe, so it will flow again.
