water leak found

Last year in a torrential rainstorm had a bit of water leaking out from underneath the cabinets mainly below the fridge. I blamed my radio antenna for it, somehow I must have hit a branch and turned it 90 degrees. Took the antenna off and resealed - seemed to be good.
Now a year later again one of those typical Florida rain showers - again water on the floor! Took me a long time to find the leak - somehow I was determent its coming from the roof going down behind the fridge.....
Not so: on the right side, water running down the side and entering thru the 110V outside receptacles! With normal rain not much was coming in....never came out from underneath the cabinets...only with a big rainstorm...
Yes there is sealant behind those outlets but did not really bond...leaving a hairline crack...
Better check yours, its so easy to overlook.
Btw I took the radio antenna off completely, instead glued a windshield antenna from amazon (9$) on the inside just below the roof behind the microwave - reception is excellent!
