How do I check the power at the breaker box for power to the water heater?

We had a branch take out the mast during the snow storm and the mast was bent. The power company cut our power due to the surge it caused. An electrician rewired up to the meter outside. A couple of weeks later we are having issues. The water heater quit working, we replaced it, but no power! Replacing the fuses, but one line of outlets in the kitchen seem to be weak or not working, too. It blew several appliances at the time of the surge. Could this be related? I am not sure where to go from here.

Howdy, have electrician back an have him/ her check the wiring sounds like you may have wire damage shorting from the surge. In mean time id take the fuse out for the heater and the outlets to be safe. Got working smoke alarms good time to check them.....
