If there are gutters, did they clog , backup and leak through a facsia?
ANY roof with less than 3/12 pitch MUST be at least double layered on the dry-in. 2/12 cannot be single layer dry-in without leaking. A membrane is better.

In the souf we'uns don't do ice dam stuff.....

Hotroddie is correct on the lower roof.
