Clean water coming up after heavy rain, not sewer water

At my daughters house they had heavy rains. Clean water is coming a floor drain in the basement. The drain in the laundry room did not come up and the waterm drains out through it. Why is fresh water coming up and from where would it be coming from?

If it was anything like the rains we had this weekend, it could be because the storm drains got backed up. With this, there is no place for some water to go and it backs up your pipe.

How old is the home? City sewer or septic system?
