It.is normal.for the wiring to go from one box to the next closest box. You can also.check the last working or first non working receptacle.

100% sure someone did not add a GFI to protect the kitchen outlets like should have been done long ago and it's tripped?

The water will not have damaged the wire. If you feel it's a water related issue then it would have to be corroded connections at a junction box that got wet.
