What can I do about sunken pavers that flood when it rains?

You really need to create a good base for them. You would have to pull them all up and lay down some new gravel underneath, preferably one that drains well to stop this.
dig them up, fill with several yards of granite gravel (as Hayden said) and then relay your pavers. perhaps leaving a tiny space between each paver for better drainage. i did this very thing as an extension to my driveway. the space between pavers makes for easy drainage and no flooding.
Hi Sherri. The best thing to do would be to pull them all up and redo it. That is a lot of work though. You could try to dig a trench on each side of the walkway and fill it with rock. Good Luck!
As mentioned you would need to build it up underneath so they aren't sitting so low, also if you are able to you could put a drainage pipe directed away from that spot (you may need to dig a trench with the end you want the water to flow placed lower than where the water is going to drain from) make sure it goes far enough away that it won't just seep back into that spot though.
