I have traced a leak to relatively minor damage at a seam in the roof. This is compounded by a hole in the baffles, which allows the water to drain into the ceiling below, instead of transporting it out to the eaves or soffit, for draining. I'm making an assumption, at this point, that the water would drain out safely, anyway, if the holes weren't in the baffles. The leak is due to wind-driven rain; it has gone through to the ceiling 3 times in 8 months, even with many storms during that time.
My two questions are:
(1) Can the baffle be patched up with something to prevent the drainage to the ceiling, and if so, how?
(2) Should the seam damage be repaired at this point, and if so, how? I can't help but wonder if simply attempting to seal the damaged area would cause the water to travel and enter somewhere else?
