TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Homeowners have noticed damage to their homes caused by the November tornado. 

Leaky roofs have become a problem for homeowner months after a tornado touched down in Tupelo.

The damage has kept roofing companies like Wheeler Roofing busy patching up leaks.

If a leak is spotted, roofers urge homeowner to call for repair as soon as possible.

“They don't get better. If you have a leak, it’s only going to get worse," said Mark Gwin, of Wheeler Roofing.

Leaky roofs can go unnoticed. Homeowners are urged to get a routine inspection of their roofs to prevent massive damage.
