By Lisa Maria Garza and Steve Barnes VAN, Texas/LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Reuters) - The governors of Texas and Arkansas declared disasters on Monday in parts of their states hit by tornadoes and floods in a storm series that slammed central states, leaving at least five people dead, injuring more than 50 and reducing buildings to splinters. A husband and wife were killed near a trailer park in Van, Texas, about 70 miles (115 km) southeast of Dallas, a town of about 2,500 people where scores of homes were shattered. The National Weather Service said an EF3 category tornado packing winds of around 140 mph (225 kph) hit the town. Near the west Arkansas town of Nashville, a baby girl was pulled from the wreckage of a mobile home where her parents died in a tornado.
Warner Music Group has announced a major uptick in recorded music streaming, as the industry continues to look beyond downloads to paid subscriptions. The company announced on Monday that its recorded music division had received more revenue from streaming than paid for digital downloads in the quarter ending March 31, an unprecedented announcement from any of the major music labels. Overall, recorded music streaming revenue increased by 33 percent, giving more support to the idea that even with its various issues, streaming is the future for music consumption. "This is an important milestone, and impressive considering the strong double-digit growth is coming on top of an increasingly significant base," Warner Music Group CEO Stephen Cooper said.
