Well this can be shocking to look at!
You should be able to see new growth emerging from buds along the remaining branches.
It may be 2 to 3 years before the Yew appears whole again.
You may want to give your hedge some extra attention this summer with water during dry times.
New growth will need more water, an inch of water per week.
