JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) -- Three more people have died from injuries sustained during the tornado that hit Joplin two weeks ago.

The city said on its web site Sunday that the three additional people died recently from their injuries, bringing the total fatality county from the EF-5 tornado to 141. The city did not identify the three new victims.

The city also said it planned to host a Town Hall meeting Monday night at the Taylor Performing Arts Center on the campus of Missouri Southern State University. The city said officials would be at the meeting to address the specifics of debris removal from the massive tornado, which demolished about a third of the southwest Missouri city.
