If you live in a house that has a hipped roof, which most people do, then there is every possibility that after a major storm, the ridge tile, this is the half round capping tile which covers the top tiles on the roof can slip away from its fixing, which in turn opens a slight or large gap between the ridge tile and the slate or roof tile. Either way, this is going to cause a lot of problems if it is not attended to urgently. Do not attempt to fix this yourself from inside your attic. Call in the roofing professionals straight away. This type of problem needs to be fixed from the outside in.
The ridge tile that has moved, or indeed any other tiles must be replaced with new tiles. The original tiles must not be used again simply because there could be hairline cracks which are not visible to the naked eye. Only a professional roofer would be aware of this.
The next stage of the repair is, once the old tiles are removed, the timber battens must be examined for water damage, if there is water damage these must also be replaced.Then you have the waterproof membrane to exam under the battens. Most likely this too would be damaged so it must be replaced.
And finally there is the insulation between the rafters. This must be considered for examination and replaced.
