There could be blockage in your water heaters venting on the outside of the home. It sound like the high limit switch has been tripped. Try unplugging the tank and plugging it back in. this will reset the tank. if the problem persists you will want to call your provider for service.

The flame sensor is bad....and it is not sensing that the flame has lit....
Some models have a separate flame sensor and some use the ignitor to sense the flame...
If it has a separate sensor then clean it with a soft cloth... if it is the ignitor then the ignitor is bad...

Water inside tank-type water heater can remain hot for some time.
That's one advantage of well-insulated tank-type water heaters.
Power outage can be related to failure of gas control.
Unplug stuff when power goes out. And then plug back in after power is restored.
Water heaters with electronics are not protected from surge.
Electronics can blow out during and after power outage. For example nearby lightning strike will cause current to run along household wires. With ordinary power outage, once power is restored, the surge can affect all kinds of electronic circuitry such as timers, water heaters, water softener, treadmill etc.
Sounds like you have intellivent gas control valve:
