Help (and a little luck) needed!

I came in today to find the heater in my tank decided to fail on. The tank looked good this afternoon so I am not sure how long this went on for. When I found it, I unplugged the heater and put a fan on the sump to cool it off. I went out and got a new heater and a new thermometer (since the temp was off the scale on the ones I had) and about 20 minutes after I found the problem the temp is still about 95 degrees. All my corals look bad ('shrooms, Kenya tree, leathers bubble, elegance) except my zoos. The fish (2 damsels and a yellow tang) look good, and the tang was eating while all this was going on. Any advice on what to do to try and save my corals is greatly appreciated!
