The tube that drains water from your under your condenser is probably clogged. If you can get under your vehicle you should be able to see the tube, ( a small hoes with an open end on it) usually just behind the engine on the wall. Take a thin object(hanger or skewer stick) and put it into the hoes. more than like the water will come out once you have unblocked it. This may or may not happen to all vehicle at some put in their life. Its an inconvenience but as long as you now what to do. then it won't be a headache.

Thanks! There is also a water rushing noise that's been going on long before the flooding.. Do you think that's related to the clog? I hear it coming from the front passenger side when I push on gas from being at a stop..

Yep once you unclog it, all that will come out.

Just had the same problem with the AC hose clog. I had my mechanic unclog it and had to rip back the carpet right back to the metal so that it would dry. My mechanic told me that he also had to do the same for his sister`s 2011 equinox. I guess this is a problem with this model.

Thanks Juan! That worked, May I add that the hose came off as i moved it .It had a stubby wider tube attached I guess to create an angle for less dirt and clogging?Anyway, with a flashlight I was a able to easily re attach it. Doesn't seem to require a clamp or or anything Gio
