JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - The search for survivors and victims of the tornado that struck Joplin, Mo., is being complicated by a fresh round of heavy weather.

The city has been pounded by strong winds, rain and hail.

Yesterday's tornado damage thousands of buildings and left at least 89 people dead as it cut a 6-mile path through southwest Missouri.

Forecasters say more tornadoes are expected across the nation's midsection through the middle of the week, though it is unlikely that any outbreak will be as widespread as one that hit the South last month.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., says Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma could see tornadoes Monday and Tuesday, and the bad weather could spread to the East Coast by Friday.
