Water from the rain has settle around the basement foundation and backed up in the hollow blocks of the basement walls. Hydrostatic pressure around a basement will force water to enter into the basement through the joint where the floor and walls meet, also known as the cold-joint.
The cold-joint is not water-tight and is where the first sign of seepage is found. This type of wet basement can be a real problem in a home, especially if the basement is used for storage or is finished and used as a living space. The benefit to having basement water seepage through the cold-joint is that it is any easy do-it-yourself fix.
