Receptacle failure following storm


After a lightning storm I lost 3 receptacles and one light switch in the garage. However, the overhead lights and 2 other receptacles remained live. All are connected to the same circuit breaker. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Look for the tripped GFCI. It could be in garage behind pile of stuff, in bathroom, an outside receptacle.
