Here's what I uncovered in my investigation:

Damp Rock is nice, but not the best item to hold. Also, you have the wrong Hidden Power type since you already have Water-type attackers on your team.

Try one of these sets:

Set 1 - Hurricane
Timid / Naive nature
Life Orb / Choice Specs
EVs: 4 Attack, 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed
- Hurricane
- Hammer Arm / Focus Blast
- Rain Dance / Hidden Power Ice
- Taunt / U-turn

Set 2 - Acrobatics
Jolly nature
Flying Gem
EVs: 252 Attack, 4 Defense, 252 Speed
- Acrobatics
- Bulk Up
- Brick Break
- Taunt / Substitute

Hurricane set is good if you want to invest in a Special Tornadus or Acrobatics set if you want to invest in a Physical Tornadus. Just choose the one that suits your playing style.
This is a Rain team, so Tornadus is best off with a Special set because of Hurricane gaining perfect accuracy in rain. Utilizing Prankster to set up Rain before the opponent can make a move is also one of Tornadus' other selling points.
