Have you replaced them yet? Did they blow out again?

You must have some short somewhere.

Was the car submerged in water?

Also, did you check the fuses under the passenger seat (use Torx keys to access them):

The fuses are under the carpet in front of the right side seat rail.
Are you sure all of them are blown? There are many different circcuits.
the only thing I can think of is your alternator maybe went bad causing the voltage to go sky high.
Have you checked the fuses above the glove box?
