There's absolutely no way to know.

First -- thunder is the sound; while it's possible your computer was damaged by an extremely loud noise, it is much more likely to have been damaged by lightning, which is the electrical part of a storm.

If the lightning both killed and got through your power supply and was able to damage your motherboard, there's nothing to stop it from damaging anything else in your system. I would proceed under the assumption that it's all gone.
