Somewhat... Somehow

I have problem with this two words. Can anybody tell me the exact meaning of those two words as well as its usage? 



Somewhat and somehow act as fillers in your sentences while you speak. 

Somewhat  refers to persons and their emotions, objects while somehow refers to procedures, reasoning.


To put them in a sentence:


What she told us took us somewhat by surprise.


Somehow we were surprised by what she told us.
