Check the transmission shifter switch / sensor on the shifter of the transmission. It is possible that the shifter has been shorted out due to the water in the car. Check the transmission fluid to make sure that it is not contaminated with water. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you diagnose your transmission.
