At least seven people have died in severe mudslides caused by heavy rains in the Venezuelan capital, Caracas.

In Antimano neighborhood, residents were forced to evacuate their homes after a small waterfall overflowed, sending a torrent of mud and debris through the area.

A resident said several more people died than those accounted for. Rescue workers still have not been able to get the bodies out of cars or homes that were submerged in mud.

Caracas' Guaire River burst and flooded many of the city's main highways and arterial roads that connect the city's eastern and western regions. Dozens of people have been sent to temporary she lters.
