old parquet floor cupping

I have a 60 year old oak parquet floor that I very recently had refinished.

The other day, a bottle of windex got knocked over on the floor. The lid was not on tight and it all leaked out. I caught it an hour or so later, but the floor was pretty soaked. The spot looks fine, but I noticed a short time later that the edges of the parquet pieces were very slightly raised. This was not the case before the windex incident.

They are up maybe 1/16th inch. I have a dehumidifier going in the room. Any chance that the boards with resume their former state when they dry completely??? I can't believe I did this.

You might try laying something heavy and flat over them to help convince the wood to lay back down.
