Just like the title says. Found a good amount of water on my passenger floor boards. Maybe coincidence that it happened after driving through some heavy rain a couple of times, maybe not. The majority of it is by the front of the passenger seat and close to the center console. None up under the dash or by the door. Any known places that clog up and back flow water back in? Headliner, sunroof, all completely dry. I'm stumped here. #sendhelp

That's a classic blocked AC evaporator drain line symptom.

On the firewall of the engine bay there's a small rubber hose that sticks out that allows the AC evaporator to drain water that forms on the ac coils. It's going to be pretty far down, underneath the "elephant trunk" drain for the windshield cowling. You can insert a coat hanger or wire into that hose to unplug the blockage and allow the evaporator pan to drain. You will know if that was the cause if water starts to flow out when you insert something into the drain, assuming you've run the ac in the car recently.

Update: found the hose, pulled it off, stuck a zip tie up there and moved it around until it moved freely, a little water poured out. And she's fixed. Thanks for the help! ✌
