Wet Parquet floor

Last night my icemaker went mad and flooded the kitchen parquet floor. After all day drying the surface looks ok, but you can tell it is separated from the subfloor. If it stays this way, can I tack down the parquet with small finishing nails? Or is the floor doomed?

Wet parquet

Put a dehumidifier and a fan in the room to expedite drying. Cross your fingers and hope that no more tiles separate from subfloor and that the tiles themselves do not begin to separate. Once tiles dry out, they may lie down again. If loose, then it may be possible to reglue or tack tiles if they have not begun to fall apart.
