When storms that move in a circular motion increase in size their wind speeds tend to increase as well. Throughout the whole movie, the wind speeds don't quite match up with the continent-sized storms. They don't move as fast or as hard. They only blow just a little bit. Storms of that size and magnitude would have produced extremely dangerous winds speeds and gusts well over 175 MPH. The snow and ice wouldn't have been as deep and thick. Everything on land including the skyscrapers in New York would have been completely destroyed.
The commentary says the closing credits are 8mins long, and were sped-up from an original 13mins duration.
