I live on a century old home whose unfinished basement got flooded this week. We had heavy rainfall which overwhelmed the city's storm sewer.
At a certain point there were about two inches of water on the basement floor so I left the house to buy a pump and hose ( we have no visible floor drain )
By the time I got back most of the water had gone. Any ideas of what may have sucked the water out in the absence of a floor drain? As far as I can tell I dont have a sump pump either.
