got caught in dowpour while roofing

Am I in a bit a trouble?

i was 1/3 done my asphalt roof when i finished up last night and overnight we got hit with thunderstorms.

It was tar papered fully and mostly flashed (where roof abutts into vertical wall) but it seems to me that water may of gotten under the 4-5 courses of newly nailed asphalt shingles and perhaps under the flashing. Should I worry about this water? Will it dry somehow by itself or is there something I should do before I continue?

It should Dry ok for you. But you want to put metal step shingles there along that wall so the water will shed from shingle to shingle and when your done you put another metal strip over the top edge of the step shingles but this you dope and fasten to the wall. that way the roof can move some from the wall and not start a leak. If you have it flashed right the water wont get under them at all. Look at the paper on the shingles it should show you haw to do it ED
