Tornado hit

HEADLINE FOUND ONLINE: Tornado with 105 mph winds hit Salisbury Monday, meteorologists confirm

I realize the headline writer saw winds and hit together, but he should have stripped out some words and realized that the story is Tornado HITS Salisbury... Why? Newspapers write in present tense.

I'd also hyphenate 105-mph.
