Its often a matter of speculation where all the waters of Noahs flood came from.

Gen 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.
12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.

Gen 7:17 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth.
18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water.
19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered.
20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits.

In modern times we have learned of underground Aquifers:
..."An underground layer of permeable rock, sediment, or soil that yields water. Aquifers can range from a few square kilometers to thousands of square kilometers in size. A underground bed or layer yielding ground water for wells and springs etc.. The water contained in an aquifer may be of great age, and in such cases is sometimes called fossil water."

This latest discovery may explain where/how so much water came from the sky. The distance this discovery would certainly rule out another flood on earth but it doesnt rule out a past event.
