Rain in engine bay - should I be worried?

Recommended Posts

I normally leave my car covered with an outdoor cover, but last night left it out to the elements. This morning checking a few things over the engine is pooled with water. I'm not so much worried about the engine cover, but there are a lot of electrics about as well - the design looks a bit flawed as any rain/water has no runoff apart from into the engine bay.

Assume this is normal, but has anyone seen this have adverse effects over time?

The cars pass a monsoon test where huge amounts of water are pumped from many directions. They're waterproof, don't worry! 

Something like this...
