In 1986 the city of Las Vegas constructed 200 hundred miles of underground tunnels to help control runoff water from the mountains and prevent flooding in the city. Some of Nevada's homeless have migrated off of the streets and into those flood tunnels. There, they are protected from the environment and removed from the eyes of tourists. Living in the tunnels allows them to maintain drug habits, be with their loved ones, and collect items that help them in building a home. For the people living under the strip, it is a step up from living on the streets. It is a way of life.
