Rain on my a55 and now it does not turn on.

My a55 got about 3 minutes of rain on it before I placed it in a leather bag. The leather bag got soaked and the bag was very humid inside. When I removed the camera from the bag about 3 hours later the camera would not turn on even with a fully charged battery. There was absolutely no moisture where the battery would be nor could I find any moisture where you would plug in cables or when I took the lens off.
Should I wait a period of time before taking my camera in for repairs?
Is there anything I should do beforehand?

If what I did effected the camera it seems that this camera is very sensitive to the elements.
Anything else I should consider besides, don't do that again?

Sony SLT-A55
