water water everywhere

We are having yet another water problem in our house, and I must say that I am thankful this one does not involve sewage. Bryan walked down our hall towards the bedrooms earlier this evening and suddenly found that his socks were wet. We opened the closet door at the end of the hall that holds the a/c and the water heater, and he found a steady stream/spray coming from the bottom of the water heater. We started walking around to see how far the water had spread, and it had gone a bit down the hall, and the majority of the water had spread into more than half of the guest bedroom. What a mess! We discovered this about three hours ago, and we have been vacuuming and blotting up the water since then. We have fans going, we’re draining the water heater, and we turned off the water. We are trying to decide if we need to tear up the carpet, and of course we have no way to get in touch with our landlord in a hurry since he’s in France and we don’t have his phone number. It also doesn’t help that this all happened on a Saturday night. Sigh. Any suggestions? Call me if you have any ideas or advice!
