Urgent help needed: water leak in attic

I hired a contractor to do the roof replacement, the old roof was teared off, but the new roof hasn't been installed. There were some rain last night and unfortunately the contractor didn't cover well and there are some water leaked into the attic. Some beans were wet, water dropped down several places. The contractor is coming soon. How should this be fixed? what steps need to do?

If there are any puddles, suck up the water with a wet vac. Point some fans towards the damp parts of the wood. It doesn't sound like you need much more than that.

Simply mitigate the damage as Pulpo suggested. It is the contractor's responsibility to repair any damage.
