Wood framed garage? Once upon a time my wife got locked out of our house 
when the door blew shut behind her unexpectedly. The local fire department 
(way back when we lived in a very small town) came to her rescue. They used 
a spreader tool to slightly spread the door frame. It caused no permanent 
damage. The door did not have a deadbolt so it only needed to spread 
~1/2"-3/4" to free the latch.

A length of 2X4 and a wedge (or pair of wedges) should accomplish the deed.
