Lightning+ well= no water Need Help

Alright this sucks.
I am on a well here, and there was a lighting strike in my backyard, and now my well doesn't work.
I reset all of the breakers, including the well disconnect.
The well disconnect has those old glass fuses, and I verified power coming in before the fuses, and leaving after the fuses.
The wires then go to some little switch type thing and I have power there too. Then the wires go down in to the casing to the pump.
My pressure gauge is saying 0 psi.
I don't know what else to check, and I am worried that my pump got cooked somehow.
