Damp….locations protected from weather and not subject to saturation with water or other liquids but subject to moderate degrees of moisture.

Wet…Installations underground, in concrete slabs, masonry in direct contact with the earth; in locations subject to saturation with water or other liquids; in unprotected locations exposed to weather.
