Water leaking from the firewall?

I got a BAD water leak coming down the floorpan/firewall where it meets the kickpanel I think its called(plasic behind parking brake lever). Got any ideas where in the hell it is coming from? I looked but it comes from to high up to see. Almost under the dash.

Might be the windshield gasket.

Thats the only place I can think of unless there is some pinchweld or something weird thats opening up. Anything else that could be leaking?
Thanks

Winshield gasket....very rare occasion the bottom corners of the window frame will rust out....or even the "cowl" but you being in Cali. I doubt it......was it orginally a cali. truck or from up north where salt is used? Any change that your steering column seal is rotted out or cut and you had went into some water?

I've seen several blazers that leaked because there was a nasty pinch weld going up the cowl, just in front of the door hinges. you have to take the fender off and fill the gap with seam sealer.
