    The sky, or "firmament" was seen as being, well, firm. It covered the Earth, which was a circular disc (says in the bible that god marked it off with a compass) as a dome. This separated the land from the waters beyond. It would get leaky sometimes and you'd get rain. When god decided to destroy the world (in a comic book he'd be called Dr. Omnipotent and heaven would be his "lair") he simply opened the firmament.

    The YECs may have abandoned the literal word of the bible in this case, but I understand there are flat Earthers out there who haven't given up.
