Lightning Strike?

Hey guys. So I have a tree lit with about 17 strings of 5mm LEDs and there was a huge storm that came through and now they lights are all on but extremely dim. Any ideas on what happened, how to fix it, and how to avoid in the future.

I'm assuming they are rectified strands. IF that's true, I'd also assume they got surged in the storm, which wrecked a rectifier or two.

Sometimes, you can just replace the first strand or two and it will fix the problem. Sometimes they are all wrecked.....
