JOPLIN, Mo. - The official death toll from powerful tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri this week stood at 126 people on Thursday, with more than 900 injured, officials said.

A series of tornadoes killed another 16 people in three states on Tuesday night.

More than 200 people remain missing, while local leaders struggle to get the devastated city back on its feet.

There has been rising frustration in Joplin that four days after the tornado some families still could not find out what happened to their loved ones or get access to morgues to identify victims.

Search crews with cadaver dogs were still looking for victims in the miles of rubble left by the tornado that tore through the city on Sunday, but hope was fading for finding survivors.
