House Under Construction Rained On

In process of building a 16' X 24' garage with large attic. I have built the frame up on slab and wrapped with house wrap. It poured rain and even though I had it all taped up, water is trapped between where 2 layers of the housewrap overlapped (about 6 feet)all the way around. Do I have to worry about mold growing in that trapped area or will it eventually dry out? Thanks for any answers.

cant you take the tape off let the water runout flip the house wrap up and let it dry? i would say when you get your roof soffits etc on you wouldnt have any probs.will say that i have never seen that happen in over 20+yrs of have your wrap lapped the wrong way.did you start from the top or bottom?
