Unhappy crank, no start condition (after severe thunderstorm)

hi everyone, so last night i was out driving around with my girlfriend. everything was fine. all of a sudden a huge rainstorm came out of nowhere with flash flood conditions. i was on main roads so i had no other option then to pretty much turn my 9-5 into noahs ark and barrel through the puddles. so all of a sudden my fuel level gauge died. as well as dte just giving me dashes. so i thought the level sensor just went out, no big deal. we get to my girlfriends house, come back out 5 mins later and the car didn't start, and still wont. it cranks just fine. and drove just fine the last time it ran. i almost got it running once but when it turned over it was idling almost like a harley, stuttering to stay running every rotation. is that sounding like fuel pump. also my drivers side floor has been soaking wet for weeks and it isnt getting better and the air conditioning only blows cold on the passenger side. it also has an open air filter on it. im very worried i hydrolocked her

What year 9-5? If it's a 4-cyl variant it's really easy to do a compression check, then you'll know.
