No storms or even waves are mentioned.
Please stick to the story as written.

Very well, then:  Please do the following math problem.

"And the rain fell on the earth 40 days and 40 nights."  (Genesis 7:12)

"{The waters} rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered." (Genesis 7:19)

The highest mountain on Earth is Chomolungma (Mount Everest), at a height of 29,029 feet above sea level.

What was the rate of rainfall for the 40 days and 40 nights?

We don't have a date for the flood given, and catastrophic events, such as in this story, could change the topography of the planet surface.  The story does state that deep caverns of water burst.  How much this may have changed the earth surface is not documented in the story.   As you have illustrated, science is almost clueless about past events.
