      @Robert Gift; Roofing Materials are distributed evenly throughout a roof to avoid such buckling. It looks like the roof was partially tore off though. Roofers sometimes move material around after a roof being loaded not knowing their might be a weak bone somewhere in the structure. Note, there is no material located on tore out section.
      Surely a thorough investigation is underway.
