Urgent help needed

Well,
It has been raining constantly here, I parked my 89 ranger truck outside last night it sat overnight in the rain ... well I start driving to work today and as soon as I go on an incline in the road water POURS into the passenger side of the truck!!!! I have a puddle of water that is as deep as the first joint of my middle finger.... What do I do??

Here are some pictures; it seems to be coming out near the underside of the glove box on the passenger side near i would liek to say the fan blower??

That is a Pepsi cap floating in the puddle



That is my first knuckle of my middle finger

remove the carpet completely before mold starts to grow in the bottom then have someone lay under the dash while you let water run in the cowl, then on the windshield etc. it could be the heater box, the windshield or where the dash panel and kick panel metal meet there is seam seal, and the seam seal falls out and it leaks

there is no seal under the cowl, the seam seal i am talking about is like caulking between the two pieces of metal visible from under the dash

seems its coming from the blower unit that is under the glove box interior but not sure .., i did remove all the wet old carpet and opened the drain plug on the pas. side ... im off wednesday and thursday so ill investigate then more thoroughly ... i forgot to mention that about a month ago my heater core took a dump on me and started pouring antifreeze in the same area ... the pas side... i bypassed it for now as i do not have the money or time to replace at this time ... i don't know if that has anything to do with it just a thought
