Help, Sturd-i-floor plywood got rained on

I just bought 14 sheets of 3/4 Sturd-i-floor t&g plywood. As we were unloading, the sky opened up and rain poured down for about 10 minutes and then stopped. About 3 sheets got soaked before I decided to leave it stacked in the pickup hoping that the top sheet would protect the other sheets.
My question is: do you think the sheets that got soaked are ruined? The other sheets got wet at the toung and grooves. Do you think they are ruined? I wish I would have spent a few more dollars for the dryply.

Don't know if it matters but I will be removing old 1x subfloor and using 2 layers of the sturdi floor and ditra as underlayment.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Should be fine.

And your right Advantech would have been a far better product.

So if the edges swell, I will have to sand them down, correct? What tool is best for this, a belt sander with coarse grit paper? I have a random orbital sander but i dont think that would do the job, correct?
