Please read the scenario, then choose the poll option that seems closest to how you would feel, as a reader, if presented with it. Imagine a range of tall mountains. They are high enough to be covered in permanent snowpack, and it's a big mountain range, hundreds of miles across. As you might expect, this mountain range is the origin of a lot of rivers. About 100-200 miles away, along one of the rivers fed by this snowpack, is the capital city of the made-up kingdom that is the setting of my current fantasy WIP. One of the mountains is a volcano, and it erupts. The eruption is arbitrarily powerful--imagine it as a 6 or 7 on the VEI, if you like. This melts a good deal of the snow, which then floods down the flanks of the mountain range. It's enough runoff, coming quickly enough, that the river running through my capital city overflows its banks even hundreds of miles from the mountains, and does so with enough force to wash away buildings, etc. This is a fantasy setting, but I don't want to use magic or any supernatural explanation for this part, because of reasons. Does anyone, off the top of their head, see any problems? I don't want a lecture on hydrology/volcanology, I'm just trying to find out if the average reader would or would not be able to suspend disbelief for this part.
