CHARLESTON, W.Va -- West Virginia governor Earl Ray Tomblin announced that the state will build a 100-ft. tall glass wall along the banks of the Ohio River to keep residents safe from flooding.

"I have a strange feeling that we're going to get some rain pretty soon," said Gov. Tomblin. "The safety of our citizens is our number one priority."

The West Virginia Department of Labor said that the project will add a job to the West Virginia economy.

"It's going to be a great job for someone," said Tomblin. "The wall's going to be about 256 miles. That's about 35 years of work for one lucky person."
