(i) The word  means ‘to develop suddenly’. the writer says that tin roofs are prone to developing unexpected leaks.

(ii)The writer was physically untouched by the rain as the tin roof stopped the rain from leaking in.

(iii) The writer was in touch with the rain at the same time because he could feel the rain by listening to its drumming sound on the corrugated tin roof.
