JOPLIN, Mo.— Three more people have died from injuries sustained during a massive tornado two weeks ago in Joplin.

Officials in Joplin said on the city's website Sunday that the three additional people died recently from their injuries, bringing the total number of fatalities from the EF-5 tornado to 141. The city did not identify the three victims.

The city says it plans to host a town hall meeting Monday night at the Taylor Performing Arts Center on the Missouri Southern State University campus. Officials at the meeting are expected to give details on removing debris from the tornado.

The May 22 twister demolished about a third of the southwestern Missouri city.
