Did you cover it with plastic ?

If not....did the rain run off ? With five hours the cement may have been set enough.

I was on a job once where a sudden shower along with a mini flash flood put about 20' of a concrete driveway under water. They were almost ready to broom it off when the rains came. About an hour later they brought in a backhoe so they could drain the water off of the fresh concrete and refinish it. Once the house was finished, that driveway looked as good as all the others except for a little bit of staining. Sometimes fresh slabs that get rained on wind up being chalky/dusty.

Probably too late now but there isn't any sense in loosing sleep over something you can't control. Inspect the slab in the morning, if there are any problems - there are guys here that can help you figure out the remedy!
