Normally there is a drain tube in the climate box that dumps under the car, sounds like yours might be plugged or something.

It's on the bottom of the AC Box under the Hood. Clean out that area..sounds like some crap got in there.

dirt and bugs can get up there and clog it up.
i had a mustang where those little tiny beatles made a nest in that tube and it was leaking on the floor board.
got a hanger and cleared it out.

I use compressed air and my long blow gun to open them up. If not available to you a clothes hanger works fine.
