Leaking metal porch roof and backing up into house
 
Hi out there, I'm really needing some help please. I just moved into our house and we have a metal roof attached to our house. The metal part covers our porch. It is leaking badly outside and our wood overlay outside is dripping bad. Our metal porch roof cover the wooden overlay part. I came home and my floor inside near the porch was wet now too. It's not from my ceiling but from behind the trim near the ceiling. I cleaned up but it's still very slowly dripping. What can I do to make it stop? The metal roof has very little to no slope. Would drilling holes to help it drain help stop my leak? Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions. Thanks!!

Without some pictures so we can see what your seeing no way can anyone help.
Could careless about inside looking at the damage, we need to see how the roof is tied into the house and what the roof looks like.

Ok. Thanks for responding. I currently can't take a pic because it is pouring rain. It's our first big rain in about a year ( live in TX) I will try to get a pic soon

Still not able to get a pic still raining. But I can feel from the bottOm that there is water collecting. Could I drill holes in the metal to help or would this make it worse?
