A Red Cross team from St. Joseph is on the ground in Joplin, where recovery efforts continue in the wake of Sunday's devastating tornado.

Emergency crews there continue to search for possible survivors. Joplin Fire Chief Mitch Randles says a third search and rescue sweep of the entire community is being done today. He says they expect to find more people alive under the debris.

Seven tornado survivors were found yesterday.

Workers are searching quickly as severe storms that could cause tornadoes are expected to slam Joplin again later today.

Two police officers were struck by lightning yesterday and one is hospitalized in critical condition.

More than 100 people were killed and hundreds more were injured Sunday when a 200-mile-per-hour tornado blasted through the community.
