It may provide some historical roots of Noah's Flood but not all the rest

ISTR that suggestions that the biblical stories of a flood may be derived from a (relatively) local deluge have been regularly mooted. I think I noticed on various web articles that the latest was really some kind of update of a proposal made some years back by a pair of Canadians.

It was first mooted back in the 90's IIRC.
