Water can easily short out the ignition system but will likely be okay after it dries out from the engine heat. It's been nine hours. But if it was driven into deep water, that may have gotten sucked into the engine and caused damage. A quick test: If the engine will crank over with the starter, it probably did not do serious damage.
