Are these caused by extreme weather? Mid managed water containment (damns)?

Or what?

Is it crazy though, maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that whatever water is on earth or in atmosphere is the same amount at all times. Like you can't destroy any or make any more.

So if that's correct how in the hell can massive floods just happen like this.

....if it rains a shitton and fills up lakes, rivers, whatever...the water has to go someplace.

Look at the western US right now. Lake Mead is so low that engineers are supposedly worried about the Hoover Dam collapsing.

You can’t stop large bodies of water once they are in motion . A tsunami puts the water in motion . Think of an ocean wave , it doesn’t stop until it hits resistance .

Water also flows to the lowest point of an elevation . In a flood , water that flows downward will only stop until it gets to the lowest elevation . Like off of a hill , it flows downward , unless it’s stopped by a dam or another way .

I haven't read or watched a ton about the European situation, but the rising water levels have to have a lot to do with it too. Italy and The Netherlands are in constant high waters now days.
