JOPLIN – The Missouri Department of Public Safety has announced the names of 138 individuals who have been confirmed dead as of 1 p.m. Thursday. Four additional individuals have been confirmed dead since Wednesday at hospitals as a result of tornado injuries.

State officials say they have confirmed, either as located or deceased, every individual who was reported unaccounted-for in the wake of last week’s tornado. Missouri State Highway Patrol Troopers also completed their mission of notifying the next-of-kin of every deceased individual at the temporary morgue.

After Thursday, the county coroner will resume his responsibilities for collecting and releasing information about individuals who have died as a result of the tornado. The Missouri State Highway Patrol will assist as needed in confirming casualty information.
