    When two words exist there is always some kind of difference:
    Storey (BE) or story (AmE) refers to the number of levels a building has:
    A four-storey building
    Floor: refers to a particular level in the building someone lives on: I live on the second floor.
    In AmE first floor is ground floor in BE.
