Do you have circuit breakers or fuses in your panel? Do you have an electric stove or oven? Does it work?
If breakers, start by turning off the main breaker then reset (turn off and on) all breakers in the panel.

I would call the power company.
Sounds like yoou may have a loose connection at the transformer or weatherhead.
If you have an electric stove, turn it on and see if the power is restored to the other rooms.
