CHICAGO — It’s been a week since the deadly tornado hit Joplin, Missouri and authorities are reporting that the death toll has climbed up to 139, including a Filipino who once worked for Warner Brothers in New York.

Relatives from Cebu confirmed to ABS-CBN the death of 76-year-old Thomas Sarino. A naturalized American citizen, he is the third person of Filipino origin to have died from last Sunday’s disaster.

According to his niece Grace Sarino, she was contacted by a certain Taylor Jayne Thompson who then relayed to her the coroner’s confirmation of the elderly Sarino’s death.(Photo courtesy of Grace Sarino)
