Possible water in air intake!!

I have been out towing people in these flash floods for a couple days now today I decided to have a little fun and went through a mud hole. After coming out a Check air filter message appeared. The engine is still starting up perfectly and running great was even able to tow a buddy's SUV right after words. What do I do? Is my engine at risk? Should I not drive it? Do I need to just install a new filter?

I would think the IC would act as a second "trap" before the engine could actually ingest water...

If you have one, you didn't specify your truck

Sorry I have 2006 6.0l f250 and I had a friend who is a mechanic check it out and he said as long as I had the blue filter it would retain the water. I'm going to order a new filter this week hopefully get better mpg from it as well. Thanks guys! First time posting on here definitely a life saver!
