The ignition side got wet and the motor started missing. Let it dry out and see if it runs ok.

Did any water get into the air filter?

Spray wd-40 on all the ignition parts. This will help dry out the. Dist cap and wires. It will displace moisture

Get a scan done to check for trouble codes.

Most likely water got to the crank sensor wire connector and caused the engine to misfire.
