It should take care of itself. I don't think the issue is water in the engine. I think the issue is water in your electronics somewhere putting the car in limp mode.

Give the car a couple of days to dry out and try it then. Also, clear the ECU codes by pulling the fuse for it.

The fact that it runs is a pretty good sign. A hydrolocked engine... well I dunno, I've only seen it happen once in person but that motor had a hole in the side of the block.
