If water came out of the pressure relief valve you had water in the tank and should be OK. The valve is near the top of the tank. I put a label on the power cord to remind me to check the WH switch before plugging in

the only way your heater element will fry is if it's turned on and exposed to air. And it only take a minute or so to fry it. If it's in water, you've done no harm.

Yes, if you got water coming out from your pressure relief valve at the TOP of your water tank, then it should be full of water still, and the electric heating element at the BOTTOM of the tank is OK since it was still immersed in water.

In my case I can do a full HW Tank by opening facets and pull the low point drain plugs. This will suck the water out while driving down the road.
