Strange Security Message

My internal network runs with a 192.168.2.x class C address range but my router (It's also the DHCP server of course) keeps emailing me the following message:

2009-11-17 19:53:00 - UDP Flood - Source:
,58393,LAN - Destination:,53,WAN

How come the source is

The Destination is my ISP DNS server I guess

I hope someone can explain whats going on,


P.S. I don't run an internal DNS Server.
