Laminate floor water damage

I have 2 small areas of water damage near the middle of the room. The top of the laminate has warped a little. Is there any way to repair this other than replacing the boards?

Can't and don't think there's an alternative

the best thing about floating laminate floors is that you CAN fairly easily take up the planks to the point of damage, remove & replace the damaged planks, and reassemble the floor.

Technically, you can replace the boards without ripping it all up. I've never done it but it looks reasonably easy. Personally, I would rather remove and reassemble if it was easy enough.

You can maybe get spare pieces from a closet or under a couch unless you have spares.
