Fact is that water can be prevented in many homes basements with proper irrigation....unless they live near homes on higher ground with good water displacement.

I have lived within a stones throw of Lake Erie in what is essentially a peninsula with homes and basements... some are no chance in hell of being dry...other are just neglected.

My home got water through the storm drain for the first time 2 days ago and I have been here 13 years. No sump pump, good drainage....wet year for sure.
