I'd imagine that the towers themselves wouldn't fall over from nothing less than a nuclear blast with the kind of concrete these modern towers are built with, but even a relatively frequent category 3 or 4 hurricane would gut a supertall just like any other building. Sandy was nowhere close to a worst case scenario for New York.

It will be interesting to see how Miami (for example) fares when a Category 5 inevitably does impact it.
