Roof water leak

We had a storm role through early this morning. In our bedroom we all of a sudden had a maybe 4 measuring cups worth of water stream from one of our lights. I went up into the attic to try and find where this was coming from and I didn't see much. I saw what looked like it may have been a drip between the sheets of OSB but i only saw it drip one time. Now, most of the storm had passed by this point but it was still raining pretty hard. We had 70mph straight line winds and very very heavy rain so I don't know if this was an anomaly or if i need to rip a bunch of stuff out to determine the issue here? It has not done this in the past. I push back the blown fiberglass to expose the area where it appeared to be wet so it would dry in the next days and then i will push it back.
Any help or ideas here would be appreciated.

Looking in the attic only tells you where to look on the roof. Apparently, you didn't look at the roof. That's your next step.
