Does anyone have experience in this area?????
Have a diver do an inspection. Also check your bilge and keel bolts. Are you making water that you weren't before? It is entirely possible that no structural damage was done.

Why would you not go out? Bumping into a submerged object could happen any time, heavy rain or no.

You don't. Just go slow next time you transit the area where you hit it.

If you want an activity that is guaranteed 100% safe, stay in bed.
