Let's Go Mountaineers!
Didn't China experiment with creating storms? I think they're creating these as payback.
On a serious note, glad your safe and hope everything gets fixed. How close were you too the eye?

Sorry to hear you got damage. Glad to hear your safe. If I lived about 1500 miles closer I'd be over in the morning and get you fixed up right!
If you have leaking, get some big plastic garbage cans, find where the water is dripping from the ceiling and take a broom handle and just poke a hole in the drywall of plaster.
I know it sounds drastic, but it could save a lot of damage if you can keep the water from building up in the ceiling. Sometimes you can save it, if it doesn't get too wet.
After it drys out you can screw it back in place and cover the staining with a pigmented shellac (ink-a-lac is one brand) Then paint over it and the stain won't bleed through.
Get a reputable roofing company. Your insurance company might even agree for an inspection. I assume you have an asphalt shingle roof. Para pit and or build up roofs are more difficult and costly repairs.

No. Rising water isn't the problem. Falling water is.
It isn't that bad in my attic. I bail about 3 gallons of waters from the catch basins we have put up there every hour while it is raining.
I really can't put a large tarp over the whole roof as there are attic vents and other vent pipes up there. If I cut the tarp to go over those - I know what will happen.
I hope this system moves quickly - not so quickly it rips my tarp off - but quickly nonetheless.
If anyone reading this anywhere near me has access to a LARGE tarp - please PM me.
