Two men, blown off a barge last night by a powerful fireworks explosion are still missing.
The Coast Guard and other rescue boats spent the day searching the Mississippi River in Alton, Illinois.
Storms had forced rescue workers to call off their search until tomorrow morning.
One man was killed on board the barge.
Authorities say the men were wearing heavy flame retardant clothing that may have dragged them under the fast river current.

Cheers erupted from Mission Control when word came that Pathfinder had survived it's risky trip thru the Martian atmosphere.
Just ninety minutes after Pathfinder bounced its way to a landing on the Martian soil, radio signals confirmed the lander was not far from its intended target.
Scientists and government officials alike were elated at how well the little robot was performing. BRIAN MUIRHEAD, FLIGHT SYSTEMS MANAGER: THIS IS WAS BEYOND WHAT WE EXPECTED. VOICE OF: VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE: CONGRATULATIONS.
Pathfinder is the first american probe to visit mars since the viking landers made history back in the 1970's.
Using a microwave oven sized rover called Cojourner, the pathfinder mission is to survey the Martian landscape.
It doesnt carry instruments to detect organisms, but this mission is just the first step in NASA's search for life on the red planet. EDWARD STONE, JET PROPULSION LABORATORY: Jennifer Sabih, CBS News, Pasadena.))
