Breaker Keeps Tripping?

About a month ago we had Denver weather while we were on vacation and upon returning one section of the kitchen had five outlets that won't work. I replaced a beaker that was damaged during the storm. I installed the new one and turned the main power on the circuit breaker pane. That same breaker keeps tripping. It is a 20 amp and from my reasearch it should be able to handle five outlets. It did before the storm.

It seems there's 5 outlets running to that breaker and according to my research that is not enough to overload it.

If you had a storm, did the wiring get wet? That could cause tripping.

Nothing got wet.... I went and bought another breaker but the same issue continues.

Do you have ground fault outlets in the kitchen (in my area, you have to by code) See if one of them is tripped. (they have their own breaker inside them, with a reset button on the outside of the outlet). If you do, and its tripped, reset it. If it trips again, replace that outlet.

I reset the one GFCI outlet but no solution.
