Here in NW Wisconsin, the ground is still frozen. Add to that 2.5" of rain last night. Add to that, I never got around to getting the gutters on the house last fall. All added up equals water flowing into the basement through every nook and crack ever made. Walked downstairs this morning, and when my bare foot landed in 2" of water, I knew it was going to be a long day. Wife and I have two wet dry vac running every 30 mins to keep up with what has newly seeped in. I found an old submerable pump that I put into a large bucket. As the vacs fill up, I dump them into the bucket, and the pump with hose running up the stairs and out the door carries off the water. I tried just about every product local hardware stores offers, but have yet to have one work to stop the flow of water. I see a very long night ahead of us.
