JOPLIN, Mo. - The death toll from a monster tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri on Sunday rose to 123 with 750 people injured and many more missing, authorities said on Tuesday.

Rescue and recovery teams scoured the wreckage of the small Midwestern city, which was devastated by a high-velocity whirl of wind that destroyed about 2,000 buildings.

Forecasters expected new storms to move into the area during the night as a line of tornadoes marched eastward from Oklahoma, where at least two people were killed and many more were injured when a tornado struck west of Oklahoma City. Two more people died in Kansas in storms there Tuesday.
