Re: Local Story
So the myth grew over time.

Which is probably what all the stories in Genesis are, myths that grew as time went on until they were compiled after Israel adopted the Phoenician alphabet ~1050BCE to ~300BCE there or about.
This would also apply to Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges etc.

Re: Universal or Local Flood?
Since the story as we have it is a myth, why should it not refer to a universal flood?

To the storytellers, it probably did. The basic problem is not whether it referred to a local or global flood, but as to what was believed at the time the story was first told. One should read the Bible and other ancient writings through the eyes of the people of the time of the writings and not try to read it through modern eyes. When one does this, then he/she can attempt to verify or debunk it.
