LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Nonprofit organization Hearts Alive Village is hosting the grand opening of its new Cat Café and Lounge on Sunday.

Lake Mead below 1,050 feet, Intake No.1 pump off

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Lake Mead has dropped below 1,050 feet, a milestone level as the Las Vegas valley's water supply dwindles during a 22-year drought.

Intake No.1 is one of three intake "straws" that take water from the lake for delivery to the valley. An animated graphic shows the interconnections of the three straws and how they send water to Las Vegas:
