The words "high hills" and "mountains" are the same in the original Hebrew. The waters were 15 cubits (22.5 feet) above the highest mountains, patently including Mount Ararat, which is now 17,000 feet high. In the "local-flood" theory, Mt. Ararat would have had the same elevation before and after the flood, but it is obvious that a 17,000 foot flood is not a local flood.
