Yes actually I can. Rain driven by 160 mph wind will force its way past otherwise normally waterproof seals.

Anybody with even a mildly scientific knowledge would understand that. The same effect as pressure washing.

My main point is the "experts" are all happy to criticise the crew on a public forum with no factual or even basic scientific knowledge. Do you know the crew didn't have engineering check the aircraft before departure? Perhaps engineering removed the aircraft or the crew removed it on engineering instructions? There are so many possibilities but it's just so easy to criticise without facts.
