This happened to my starter after driving through a pond. I hosed the starter with my pressure washer to clean any mud off/around it. Now starts normal again. It's probably not a good idea to hose your starter, especially with 3000psi pressure washer, but I was already planning to rebuild it if the pressure washer didn't work.
that is interesting, this was the other night and now it seems to be fine.

I guess if your starter "clicks" a few times before it starts, then it might just need a good wash from either a hose or, in your case, a flood
