Heavy rains, engine sounds weird.

hello, all! Yesterday, it rained extremely hard, which is unusual for CA. It rained so hard that the street was flooded. The water was about 8 to 12 inches. My car was parked on the curb. I started my car to go to work and it sounded very strange. It drove just fine, but the sound is causing me to worry. It sounds like maybe something is wet and slapping on the inside, but that's just my lack of knowledge interpretation of the situation. The breaks are squeeling now, but the slapping noise is my main concern. It drives just fine, stops just fine, starts and turns off just fine. Any ideas?
