JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — Missouri authorities have released the names of 31 people confirmed dead from the tornado that ripped through Joplin earlier this week.

The Missouri Department of Public Safety made the list of names public Friday night after next of kin were notified. Gov.

City officials said Friday that the number of people confirmed dead now stands at 132 — six more than the day before.
