How did the Earth flood in Noah's time?

Genesis 7
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

From this short verse we learn the the flood waters came from three sources.

  • fountains of the great deep were broken up (or burst open, see cross reference)
  • windows of heaven were opened
  • rain upon the earth for forty days and forty nights.
What are the fountains of the great deep?

1828 dictionary - Fountain : A spring, or source of water; properly, a spring or issuing of water from the earth.

What are the Windows of Heaven?

1828 dictionary - Window: An aperture; or rather the clouds or water-spouts. - The windows of heaven were opened. Genesis 7.

How much clouds and moisture in the sky would it take to rain for 40 days and nights?
