A man from central China's Henan Province who is convinced the world will end in 2012 has hired workers to build his own 'Noah's ark.'
The 20,000 yuan (US$3,130) ark is being built from an 8-meter-long oil tank with a diameter of 2.5 meters by a resident of Luohe City. It has three vents, several small windows and is equipped with six wheels so that it could be attached to a truck and moved around, Dahe.com reported today.
When the doomsday floods strike, the tank would float on the water as its doors and windows can seal tightly, the report said.
The tank, which will be able to hold over 20 people, is divided into three compartments. The first is a restroom and the second is a storage room that will hold one month's food supplies and daily necessities. The last compartment is the bedroom.
The workers said they would also install air-conditioners, power generators and kitchen appliances in the ark.
