We experienced the fury of hurricane Irene this weekend and found water coming up from the basement floor in a couple spots in the same section of the basement floor. It was pouring in like a garden hose turned on low to medium at times. I realized that rain water from the front yard is where its coming from because whenever rain water was puddling in the front it was also coming into the basement. For starters, I plan to further extend the gutter downspouts to the street beyond the 10' away they already go to. How do I fix water coming up from the basement floor? This only happens wheb we have a heavy rainfall. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
