Roof leak in 06 tropical

We went FT in Feburary. It seems rain is relentless, especially in thunderstorms. We have been in Galveston for a month and it has not stopped raining. Ok...Larry get to the point. We had a leak coming out of one of the stereo speakers (6 " dia.). I revealed all seams in that area with self flowing DAP. It seemed to be ok. Then we were hit with a thunderstorm and rain came down so hard we had new leaks in the light fixtures (incandescent fixtures in the center) both front and rear. I have taken all the fixtures down and been blowing fans constantly.

I am thinking it might be the seal around the AC units? Anyone have experience with this?

Thank you.

To add, we left Galveston this morning and are heading east to LA and then on to FL. Rain is still forecasted.

If you have a solar panel check under the sealer for rusted screws leaking.

The sources of Roof leaks are almost never directly above where the water comes in. If you had a blowing (windy) rain, AC seal leaks would be suspect.
When you get a chance to dance, or sit this one out......I hope you DANCE!
