Is the separation in the picture below a result of the roof heaving? If facing the front of the house, this is on the left side. yes the white is sunlight.

Another BTW, yes I did look through out the house for other signs such as wall/ceiling cracks but found none. BUT! The whole interior of the house was painted about 2 weeks ago. So if there were any cracks, I wouldn't be seeing them.

Is that the firewall on the side in the first photo that you can see daylight?

I don't think that is uplift, it looks more like a flashing problem. What did it look like from the outside, or could you even get to it? Definitely need to comment on the missing and damaged truss members.

Yes that is the firewall. The gap is over an inch I could fit index and middle finger in it. And I could not get a good look from the outside, too high (ladder didn;t reach) and covered by a tree. I have a roofing buddy and we are setting it up to go back with his gear and take a better look.
