Faye Coakley doesn’t normally surf the Internet, but the Mortons Gap woman has been on the Web nonstop this past week searching for updates on her missing relatives. Floyd and Martha Huff and Cherry Huff, Coakley’s uncle and two aunts, all reside in Joplin, Mo. An EF5 tornado laid much of the city bare after it ripped through Joplin last Sunday evening. All three Huffs, who are in their early 80s, are still unaccounted for. The lack of news is fraying Coakley’s nerves.
