Default Water Inside my Door, Need it Out

Hello, I recently drove thru a nice summer shower and now have a fishtank in the bottom of my passenger side door. I can find no drain plug or hole. Have I just missed it? Surely the doors have a mechanism for drainage. I need help quick, or I might get mold going in this heat. Thanks for any ideas, GM

I found the problem. There are two seams about 2 inches wide, on the bottom of each door, where the door skins meet. I am assuming the factory left these for water to weep through. Well the body man ran a seam of filler along the passenger door and covered the weeping slots. So I measured the drivers door weepers and took a precision screwdriver to the passenger door and cleared a small hole. The water came pouring out. Crisis averted. GM
