potato plants down

heavy rained knocked over my potato plants.... what should I do?? will they be ok if I just leave them leaning over?

also am I paranoid or should I be worried... I dug my hands in and only found a few small potatoes underneath the plants... they just started flowering about a week or two ago?

I wouldn't worry to much, just let them go and I am sure they will be fine. Our froze and still came back with a punch. They are about 3 ft tall right now, just started to flower about a week ago and we only have marbles, they just take time.
