A woman observes the wreckage caused by mudslides and flooding in Teresopolis, some 100 km from downtown Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on January 13, 2011. Rescuers searched through layers of mud Thursday for survivors and bodies after freakishly heavy rains caused landslides and torrents to slice through three towns near Rio de Janeiro, killing at least 356 people.
The foot of a victim is pictured after a landslide in Teresopolis January 13, 2011. The death toll from the devastated mountainous region near the city of Rio de Janeiro was expected to rise as rescuers reached the more remote areas. Heavy rains earlier in the week killed 13 people in Sao Paulo state, bringing the total number of deaths in southern Brazil to at least 369.
