My guess is that it is from the door. Car designers cannot prevent water from getting inside the door, so there are slot-shaped drains on the bottom of the door towards the outside edge. If the drains get plugged, then the bottom of the door fills until the water level reaches an access opening and then leaks into the car.

You could open the door and look on the bottom and poke something up into the drain slots. But this just pushes the debris out of the way and it will eventually plug the openings again. The permanent solution is to pull the door panel off and clean the debris out.

^Agreed. Something has to be plugging the drain holes. Pulling the panel off and cleaning out the bottom of the door isn't a very difficult job anyway and should solve your problem.

Well if you want to get technical the pic you posted is of your rocker panels and the same principle would apply. If need be just drill a couple small holes for drainage. It's not rocket science and there's no need to be rude to people who are only trying to help.
