Will homeowners insurance pay to fix a leaky roof following a bad rain storm?

I plan on calling the insurance company tomorrow, but before I do, I thought I’d ask here first, just out of curiosity, to see if this is generally a covered expense or not (and if it isn’t normally covered, if there are ever exceptions to allow something like this.)

A bad thunderstrom blew through, and following this a leak y wet spot developed the ceilings in one of the rooms. Not bad, but definitely coming through the roof, and definitely something that needs to be repaired.

Should I expect homeowners to cover something like this?
