Stand Soaked

Aqueon Pine Stand #51192 74" x 26.5" x 29.8"

I believe it's made of white pine. There is no paint or coating where the pine meets the carpet.

My sump had a overflow two days ago. I spilled around 15 gallons of water onto the base of my stand and the carpet beneath. It's still wet where the base of the stand and carpet meet. The wooden shims are soaked as well.

Is this likely to cause damage to the stand?
