Dictionary entry: hit

When I was translating, I noticed that one of the uses for the word hit was missing. The one that I think is missing is the use of hit like in "The tornado hit the city". I was wondering if that use for the word could be added, however I'm not sure if there is a correct word in Spanish for it.
