There is a vent tube on the tranny you must have sucked water into. Possibly a check valve, or stay out of "deepish water."

The water didn't get in through the pan. Like GrandpaJeeper said, there is a breather hose on the top of the transmission. The best way to take care of this is to extend that hose to somewhere up under the hood so that this doesn't happen again.

You are also going to want to drain it and re-fill. Drive it for a few days or a week and repeat. Then if there is any hint of a milky color to the fluid do it again in another few days. Auto tranny's are not a big fan of water.
