LOUD EXHAUST AFTER DRIVING THROUGH HIGH WATER

1996 Mazda MX6 • 4 cylinder 2WD Manual • 180 miles

I drove through 4-6 inches of water, immediately after my exhaust was extremely loud. The noise is coming from near the the catalytic converter. Also when I'm in 1st or 2nd gear driving 15mph or less there is a tinkering noise coming from the same area. The car has smelled a little moldy as well. What could be a possible diagnosis? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Water could have disrupted the catalytic converter catalyst-have the exhaust system backpressure tested to find out more-
