The government shutdown is forcing Lake Mead residents out of their homes because they sit on federal land, a Las Vegas television station reported.

Joyce Spencer, 77, and her husband, Ralph, 80, were given 24 hours to vacate their home on Thursday.

I had to go to town today and buy Ralph undershirts and jeans because I forgot his pants,” Mrs. Spencer told KTNV.

The couple has been living in the family ice cream store, and they’re not allowed home until the government reopens, the station said.
