worst case

Worst case is hydrolock water goes into cyl and will not compress result is bent rods and scrap engine.(been there done that).second could be wet electronics result no start due to electrical problems.

As Michael noted. The second the water reaches the intake snorkel, it will take about 2 seconds to totally destroy a good engine. Every time we see any flooding, I see a number of them and it's big bucks to repair.
