Leaking ridge vent

We recently had 30-40 mph winds with heavy rain and it appears that the combination of the two pushed water up and in the ridge vent on our house.
Is there a product available to prevent this from occuring again without having to completly replace the vent system? Due to our high trace ceilings I am unable to get to the area that the leak occured from inside. It appears to have occured near one end of the continuous vent but cannot be sure. The house was constructed 6 years ago.

Stretch,
Check to see if the plug is in the end of the vent. If those are gone it will alow water to enter. That is the only place it could leak unless it was improperly installed or it coming loose off the roof.

Thanks,
I'll drag out the ladder and check it out. So far we haven't had a drop of rain since then.
