High tide, water in passenger footwell, can't shift out of park on 1995 Toyota Camry

A mix of tide and rain water rose up into the passenger well, then spread to the other footwells. We have these three problems: 1) key can't be removed from ignition 2) we can't shift out of park (brake is on) and 3) the airbag warning light stays lit. We're madly trying to get the floor carpets dried out -- have the heater on high, set to go to floor only, A/C on, fresh air vent chosen. Plus we've got a portable heater sitting in the driver's footwell. Any and all suggestions/ideas welcome!

It's definitely electrical. You're going to have to dry it out and start checking fuses and relays or just tow it to a shop. This will be expensive.
