According to the Daily Mail, there are over 1000 people living in the flood tunnels beneath Las Vegas, surrounded by poisonous spiders and an iron bar-wielding man known as the Troll.
Some, like Steven and his girlfriend Kathryn, have furnished their home with considerable care – their 400sq ft ‘bungalow’ boasts a double bed, a wardrobe and even a bookshelf.
They have been there for five years, fashioning a shower out of a water cooler, hanging paintings on the walls and collating a library from abandoned books.
Their possessions, however, are carefully placed in plastic crates to stop them getting soaked by the noxious water pooling on the floor.
‘Our bed came from a skip oustide an apartment complex,’ Steven explains. ‘It’s mainly stuff people dump that we pick up. One man’s junk is another man’s gold.
‘We get the stuff late at night so people don’t see us because it’s kind of embarrassing.’
