Let's assume you have a leak in a water pipe in your garden. You take a bucket and a some sealing material to fix the problem. After a while, you see that the leak is much bigger that you need a specialist (plumber) to bring bigger tools. In the meanwhile, you are still using the bucket to drain the water. After a while, you notice that a massive underground stream has opened and you need to handle millions of liters of water every second.
You don't just need new buckets, but a completely new approach to looking at the problem just because the volume and velocity of water has grown. To prevent the town from flooding, maybe you need your government to build a massive dam that requires an enormous civil engineering expertise and an elaborate control system. To make things worse, everywhere water is gushing out from nowhere and everyone is scared with the variety.
