Roof Leaking Damage assessment

I live in South Florida and the last few days we have had torrential downpours. When I came home from work this morning I found on my kitchen counter a puddle of water and also in my two cabinets directly above the counter space. I quickly found that the water was coming from around my stove vent on the roof and immediately resealed around it. My question is how much damage do you think is sustained behind the cabinets due to a few hours of dampness? Is it something that will dry itself or will I have to remove the cabinetry and check the drywall, etc, etc....I am quite clueless when it comes to these types of issues and would appreciate any assistance.

Thanks again

If you are absolutely sure that it hasn't leaked before in this spot, then it will most likely dry out on its own. However if this has been a slow leak that has just now opened up, you may have to do some additional looking. If there is any way for you to dry out the area with a fan, I'd try that.

Good luck
