Empty the water heater (remove the plug ) and open pressure relief valve also.. if you can... take a few clean rags(12x12 ) ..twist a corner and insert them into the plug hole to absorb the water in the bottom of the tank..

It does not drain the heater. You'll need to pull the plug and lift the pressure relief bail to let air in so the water will gush out.
