Car loses power steering and power brakes in rain or thru puddles

(2002 Hyundai Sonata)
in Arlington, VA on July 14, 2014
Problem occurs regularly even going through shallow water. VERY SCARY - Sudden loss of steering and brakes for about 30 seconds then will be OK until next puddle is hit or with a heavy rain. Car had spark plugs replaced 35000 ago. Belts look tight and firm. Car runs firm and smooth in normal weather.
