Woman stuck in Boulder Creek overnight with dementia patient, walks to safety


BOULDER CREEK, Calif. (KION-TV)- The latest storms have ravaged California, creating tornados in South California and Thunderstorm Warnings on the Monterey Peninsula. Santa Cruz had hundreds of trees fall Tuesday, forcing several closed roads.

A woman named Veronica shared her story on social media, claiming she was stuck in Boulder Creek for 24 hours with a dementia patient. She said there was no power or service, and they had to use neighbors' Wi-Fi in the rain.

After walking, she finally got out this morning but could only do so for an hour before the road was closed again.
