A man carries his daughter along a mud-cover street of Santa Cruz de Mora in Merida state, 800 km west from Caracas, February 13, 2005. Rescue workers are struggling to reach remote villages in Venezuela's Andean mountains cut off by torrential rains and landslides that have killed more than 40 people in nearly a week. Local authorities said on Saturday they had found at least 25 bodies in Santa Cruz de Mora in Merida state and feared many more were dead after rains flooded rivers and sent scores of mudslides tumbling onto homes, roads and bridges.
