The death toll rose to 139, City Manager Mark Rohr said late Saturday. Earlier in the day, he had given a figure of 142. He did not elaborate on the change.
State officials say there are 142 sets of human remains at the morgue handling those killed by the storm, and some could be from the same victim.
Meanwhile, 100 people remained unaccounted for as search and rescue missions continued.
Where is one-third of Joplin?
The tornado that carved through southwestern Missouri last Sunday leveled parts of this city of 50,000 so completely- taking landmarks, street signs, everything – that the community's inner GPS remains out of whack. Longtime residents, including the mayor, will tell you that even when on the central thoroughfare of South Main Street, they are not always sure where they stand.
The onset of the funeral season in Joplin has been delayed by the lengthy process of positively identifying the dead. Mancini and her sister, Paulla Wells, 39, knew that Cope had found their father's wallet next to his body. Yet officials refused to release it until the day before Saturday morning's funeral, Mancini said.
"It was FEMA this, FEMA that," she said, referring to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
"We really haven't had the chance to grieve, because we've had to do nothing but fight to get Dad back. And a lot of families are going through this. You feel helpless," she said.
"We thought we were done with the 100-dead tornadoes," said Thomas P. Grazulis, a tornado historian in St. Johnsbury, Vt. "With warnings and Doppler radar, there was a lot of feeling that we were done with this stuff."
The final weeks in a war zone are often the most dangerous, as weary troops get sloppy or unfocused. Once they arrive home, alcohol abuse, traffic accidents and other measures of mayhem typically rise as they blow off steam.
Weeks later, as the joy of return subsides, deep-seated emotional or psychological problems can begin to show. The sleeplessness, anxiety and irritability of post-traumatic stress disorder, for instance, often take months to emerge as combat veterans confront the tensions of home and the recurring memories of war.
