car wont turn over w/ hissing sound

i'll keep this short and simple as i need a quick answer if possible

2003 acura rsx base auto ~93500mi, cai, lowered

scenario: has been raining alot lately, has had to drive in the rain (no hydrolock to my knowledge), been driving around all day yesterday with no rain at all. all the sudden car wont start.

symptoms:
car wont turn over.
electrics seem to work okay
the following indicators remain on: low oil pressure, battery charging system, brake, srs, abs (blinks off when trying to start car, comes on when not trying to start car).
hissing sound when turning key to start motor. no clicking sounds, no turn over, nothing. the 'hissing' noise more or less sounds like a belt running through the pulleys really.

solutions? starter is my educated guess but when searching, i got no indication of a hissing noise. any help appreciated as i need this fixed in two days to make it to school

the hissing noise is the fuel pump. see if you can pull the plugs and start the car to try and blow the water out of the car if it is hydrolocked.

just to ease my mind, if it is hydrolocked, i shouldn't have been able to drive an entire day after it raining right? i ask because im no where near home with the tools to take apart the car so i'm pretty limited with what i can do
