Drainage question

I've been noticing when it rain the day before, water is sitting in the cowl area. Is there a drainage hole somewhere?? Anyone experience this before?? If so, how this you fix it??

Thanks, Sam

Do not quote me on this, but I believe the drains are on the upper left and right of the engine bay right below the windshield.

...and if they are like most other vehicles on the road they'll be prone to blockages from foliage. Leaves etc seem to love gathering under the cowl and then rotting to form a lovely compost that 1. Blocks the drains and, 2. Results in wet, smelly carpets in the front footwell since the water tends to drain into the car through the air conditioning duct as a result. Very common problem for people who park their cars under trees on a continual basis.
