Plugged weep holes

On our travels we were hit pretty hard with storms in South Dakota. When we getting ready for travel we noticed the right front wall was full of water. I used a razor blade to relieve the pressure. My question is this....should I cut the wood out underneath the window and replace? Or should I cut the wallpaper out and dry it and dehumidify it?

It would me easier to just deal with the wall paper but there could still be water trapped in the wall. Mold and delamination are big issues. If it was a lot of water, you may have to open the wall to dry it out.

This right here is the best reply so far. I've done a lot of roofing in my past employment and the only way to fix interior water damage is to find the leak first. Otherwise, you will forever be repairing that wall section.
