Comparing flood myths

Flood stories have been around since the epic of Gilgamesh the first flood story. The Epic of Gilgamesh told a tale of the gods getting angry at mortals for being to loud and killing all of them. But one man foretold about the flood  made a  boat with 2 of every animal. In the legend of Deucalion the world was flooded as well. But in this legend, they  build a chest. Only  Deucalion and his wife survived in the chest. Others climbed the highest mountain in order to survive the flood
