wet vapor barrier


My crawl space got water in it from Hurricane Sandy. It never had water before. There is a plastic barrier on the ground. The water has been pumped out.
Should I replace the plastic sheeting?

Just remove it, flip it over and let it dry out in the yard if possible.
It's not going to go bad, and can be reused.
Get some fans under there and leave the access door open.
If it's going to get below freezing, close the space up and run a dehumidifier.
